Masamotoís VG series is made from Hyper Molybdenum Vanadium steel, a stainless alloy with great strength and fine structure. This knife was rated #1 Hybrid Chefís Knife by Cookís Illustrated Magazine in a survey of top brands. These knives have excellent edge retention and combine the sharpness of carbon steel with superior corrosion resistance. The comfortable Duracon resin handles are anti-bacterial and easy to the touch. They endow these knives with a light and balanced feel. The 210mm gyuto is a perfect size chef knife for all uses and spaces: not too big, not too small. The blade comes sharpened to fine 70/30 edge. The blade height is generous for a 210mm knife, which gives that extra bit of finger clearance without the penalty of too much bulk. We really like the grinds on the blades of Masamoto knives which contribute to their exceptional precision and speed. This is one of the most popular sized gyutos made by one of the most popular Japanese knife makers worldwide.

    I've used and owned many, many different brands and kinds of kitchen knives, and this is hands down my favorite. For me, it just feels *right*: the weight and balance are excellent, the handle feels right, and the profile isn't too shallow or too tall, and is plenty thin to glide through food. Edge retention so far has been excellent, and when I have needed to sharpen it I I can get the edge to an outstanding level of sharpness with minimal difficulty, despite it being stainless. I own a few other thinner, carbon steel, "laser"-like knives, and while they may be thinner and able to take a slightly keener edge, they're also only suited for certain kinds of applications, just feel more brittle/delicate, and require a little more TLC. Not so with this--if I'm in a rush and can't baby it, I don't need to worry about it. As a result of this combination of superior performance and easy maintenance, this has truly become my all-purpose knife. Highly recommend for someone looking to upgrade from the typical Wusthof/Henckels/Shun/Global/Victorinox chef knives. It's a whole different experience. One note if you do purchase this: to really get the most out of the blade, learn how to use waterstones to sharpen. It's not hard to do, and will make a major difference in performance.

    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!
