Please Note. Hiromoto has discontinued operations and we are now out of this knife and will shortly be out of all of them. We recommend you try the Kohetsu AS Westerns since they are made with the same steel combination and have upgraded handles and better fit and finish.

We like Hiromoto knives a lot! This Japanese knife maker has been fashioning fine blades from their Seki City shop for decades. The product line we carry represents their sweet spot for price and performance. Fashioned from a mixture of high Carbon steel, Chromium and Tungsten, these Aogami Super blades are known for their ease of maintenance, sharpness retention and ability to hold a razor sharp cutting edge. To protect this fine metal, a layer of 405 stainless steel is added which gives you the rust resisting attributes of a full stainless. The exposed edge in the 60-62 Rockwell range results in a knife that is both durable and perfectly balanced.

    A wonderful knife! Beautiful weight, perfect balance. The finish on mine was excellent, with a perfectly finished handle, and one tiny tiny miniscule, almost invisible ding on a corner near the bolster that adds a tiny bit of character to the knife. The out of the box edge was super, but after using it for awhile I stropped it on balsa and horse, and it took it up another notch.

    The weight of the piece as a 210 is nice, giving the user a sense of brute force, while the balance allows it to feel perfectly nimble whether working with the tip of the blade or more of the belly. A ton of fun to work with!

    An amazing knife made out of amazing steel. It seems as though this knife can be honed to within a molecule of an infinite edge. If you want an insanely sharp knife, this is for you. Certainly sharp enough out of the box, I ran mine along 1K, 5K, and 10K stones, then stropped with a Richmond Strop kit. Scary, scary sharp. (See above video as it falls through a ripe tomato). Rust has not been a problem for me, but I always wash and dry my knives after use.

    One of the best, if not THE best value Western Gyuto on the market. Good construction, and excellent cutting performance and edge retention from the AS blade. A great introduction to Japanese knives.

    This knife is extremely sharp out of the box. This knife doesn't feel flimsy, it has the right amount of weight for a sturdy feel and what feels like great control. It has a nicely polished handle and a smooth transition from blade to handle. I would recommend this knife!

    The first knife that I recieved came in the mail bent. After a quick email a new one was sent to me for a return within a day of my notification. Great customer service!

    This is one great knife. When I first bought this for my wife she cut herself every time she used it. After a while it was the only knife she would use. Holds an edge really well and sharpens nice too, although you won't need to very often. Carbon steel quickly turns a beautiful bronze color.

    I own several high-end custom knives and gave my Hiromoto AS to my mother as a gift. Wow, do I regret it! This knife is fantastic, and easily competes with knives in a far higher price bracket. Easy to use, easy to care for with minimal effort, and cuts like a champ. I plan on giving everyone in my family one of these as a gift; however, I am getting myself one first!
