Like the other knives in the Hiromoto range of Super Aogami steel this 240mm Gyuto offers a great balance between price and performance. And a great balanced knife in your hand! 240mm Gyutos occupy the sweet spot of Chefís knives. They are capable of handling all but the largest cuts of meat or other produce. Yet these knives are still nimble enough to glide through your finest cutting and chopping needs. The blade is a san mai construction of Super Aogami steel refined from Yasugi sand-irons and an outer layer of 405 stainless steel. So very little maintenance is required to keep the knife rust free and sharp as a razor. All that and good looks, makes this Gyuto a perfect central character on your kitchen knife stage!

    I got it for my husband and he absolutely loves it. He says the balance is great and it keeps its edge. It's sharp! It's beautiful. Love the box it came in. Now he's thinking about looking for some advice on a whetstone. Thanks for a great product!

    Great workhorse of a knife. I did get one with Adam's Custom Handle. Well worth any added price, and vastly improves the F&F. After using it for a month, I can tell you it has great edge retention, that is easliy maintained through stropping. It also sharpens up easily. I would buy another without hesitation.

    This knife is awesome, and it looks amazing with the patina. I highly recommend it as a first carbon or Japanese knife, or to anyone looking for a great knife.

    The Hiromoto AS 240 gyuto is awesome! Heft and balance similar to a western design, but improved. The carbon steel takes a great patina with little reactivity - the stainless cladding scratches up a little, but for the performance and price its more than worth it. Decent edge out of the box and sharpens easy breezy. Enough flat from the heel along the edge to slice and push effortlessly, but enough belly to rock as needed. All in all great knife for the $. As always, service and shipping from chefknivestogo is ++

    Just got this knife from my wife as a bday gift, btw thank you chefsknivestogo.com. Straight out of the box I cut the only hard substance I could find in my kitchen at the moment- almonds and walnuts. This knife cuts perfectly, cuts are straight all the way through, sharpness is great otb, could use a little sharpening but I will test it like it is for now. Great patina finish next to the edge, a bit heavy on the hand however balanced pretty good. Only one thing is the handle finish, the tang is stepping out a bit from the handle plates, but that can be easily shaved if that kind of thing bothers you. Handle is a perfect fit for my hand, not too big nor too small.The knife looks and feels like a workhorse and can take abuse where if re-sharped again would be feeling brand new.It is definitely a leader in my collection right now.

    Big bruiser of a knife compared to my 210mm Kikuichi. Very sharp and more importantly easy to sharpen. Amazing value for the money and the patina on the cutting edge looks like a samurai sword :-)

    ""Aogami super (AS) steel is great. It holds an edge for a long time at very acute angles.
    This knife in the 24cm size is very convenient.

    Rust is not really an issue, only slight pattina occurs, but sharpening or stropping actually polishes practically the whole area of exposed core (of carbon steel). So if you like to keep your knife sharp, you can also have it shiny for most of the time :)

    Fit and finish is only mediocre, but the cutting ability of this knife is worth it.
    It is my favorite knife in the kitchen.

    If the F&F was better, it would deserve 5 stars without a blink of the eye.

    I love this knife. The only thing why you should buy this knife is the steel.

    Aogami Super it's an outstanding steel. Not only it holds an edge for mighty long time, but also it's sharpens easily (similar to M2 high speed steel) leaving almost no burr. Relatively high percentage of alloy elements results in decent rust resistance ( patina comes quickly, but there is no rust pitting like in 1095 or Shirogami carbon steels)

    The only complain I have, is the fit and finish. One could see minor flaws especially in handle.

    Overall, it's a great knife with mediocre fit and finish. Still one of the best bang for the buck currently on the market.

    After much research, this was my first serious knife (my two Globals don't count). I got this knife for work, so I needed something that can keep a keen edge for a long time, wasn't too much maintenance, offered good performance for the $$$ and didn't need to be babied. I'm happy to say this bad-boy satisfied on all fronts! Like most Japanese knives, you'll need to put a new edge on it to really get the most out of it, as the factory edge was pretty conservative. The only minor negative I have would be that the soft stainless steel cladding seems to scratch pretty easily, but that's ok for me, since I plan to polish the side of the blade any how. Don't worry about the carbon edge. All you need to do is wipe it after completing a cutting task, and rinse and dry it after cutting something acidic or corrosive. I've had the occasional busy shift where I've had to cut some tomatoes or fish and get back to it 15 minutes later and no rust formed. Just don't make a habit out of that kind of treatment and you'll be happy. Oh, and one last thing; the patina'd edge makes this hands-down the sexiest knife in my roll. Bottom line, everyone should own at-least one Hiromoto AS.

    I don't know that I can say enough good things about this knife. It's easy to sharpen, can take a razor sharp edge that will last forever, is easy to take care of despite being carbon, and is one of the BEST values around. The only negative is that occasionally you might get a handle that is just a little bit off, but at the end of the day, this is simply one of the best bang for the bucks out there.

    This is a great knife for someone interested in carbon steel. It holds an edge for a long time, sharpens quickly and is light and nimble. It is cladded so only the area near the edge will react and after a couple of uses it will form a nice patina.
    It is overall a great knife especially for its price.
