There is something rather comforting about a short gyuto. The size, weight, and responsiveness of this size knife make it a perfect choice for chefs looking to own just one good blade fit for almost every purpose.

The Kamo 210mm gyuto is such a knife. Not only can it process just about anything you throw at it, it does so with a consummate ease of use and maintenance. The inner core of R2 steel is one reason for this. R2 is a great alloy for kitchen knives because it can be heat treated to a fairly high leveló62-63 HRC in this case. Yet it sharpens with relative ease and holds an edge as well as most steels. The softer outer layers of stainless steel contribute to the knifeís strength and resilience. Some rather tasty etching reveals the layers in a dramatic semi-matte fashion which aids in food release and just looks so cool!

At 5.4 ounces, the Kamo is no laser, yet it is still a light knife for its size. The lightness translates into a blade that is stiff and responsive. Please note that the knife is long for a 210 as it comes in at just over 220mm! It is also a rather tall blade at almost 48mm. The Kamo gyuto has a nice rounded belly and comes with an edge that is fairly sharp right out of the box. This is a great looking knife that is a breeze to maintain and a joy to use.

    I love the workmanship and quality of this knife. It cuts well out of the box, and I find it perfectly balanced. I was also very happy with the service from ChefsKnivesToGO... overall, very happy!

    I don't know if it was just the knife I received (which I returned) the fit and finish for a knife at this price range was not very good, but comparable to other R2 steel knives they are a good price for the steel
