Masamoto 210mm Gyuto. This general purpose chef knife measures about 8.25" or 210mm on the edge. These knives are made for the western market and feature Masamoto's high quality "Hyper Molybdenum Vanadium" steel which is a proprietary steel they use and contains 1% carbon. The knives come with POM handles which is a big improvement over the more common wooden scales that other manufacturer's use that typically shrink.
Outstanding knife thus far. The feel,and weight are perfect,and it"s giving me the best of both worlds (thin,very sharp,holds its’ edge,and durability that the VG-10 blades tend to lack. Buy this knife!
