This 240mm gyuto from the Masakage Yuki lineup is crafted by master blacksmith Hiroshi Kato. It is constructed of a Shirogami #2 carbon steel core, clad in an easy to maintain stainless steel. Shirogami #2, known for keen edge taking, couples with the Yukiís incredibly thin grind to make the Yuki a purebred performer in the kitchen. Aesthetically, the Yuki is loaded with character, wearing a refined but rustic nashiji (pear skin) finish. Individual knives may vary from the posted specifications. The core steel of this knife is reactive and will patina with normal use.

    5  Love the Entire Masakage Line., November 7, 2014

    I bought this knife on the recommendation from Mark I originally ordered the 240 Mizu but it happened to be out of stock when I ordered but not listed as out of stock on the website. Mark asked me if I would like to have this one instead. I wasn't sure if I would like this knife or not but now that Iíve had it for a year I love this knife. Its sharpness is superb with good edge, just the other day I took this knife to lemon grass which my one german knife has trouble with. The Yuki made if feel like the lemon grass wasnít even there. After the hour or so of prep I tested how well the edge held up and even though I could feel a reduction in sharpness I could still push cut paper. I took the knife and stropped it across balsa loaded with diamond spray to refresh the edge which worked wonderfully. All i all I love the entire Masakage line and wish I could afford all their blades.

    I love this knife it was recommended to me my Mark when another knife was out of stock. Although I liked the look of the other knife more I am more than happy with this one. Screaming sharp edge out of the box and easy to resharpen.

    This was my first Japanese knife purchase and I found the videos and the reviews/recommendations very helpful with narrowing down the choices and making the selection. I had been using a 10 Henckel's and was looking forward to the the different handle type and forward balance point, the grind, along with the lighter weight. When I received and used the new knife, it was all I had expected and more. It felt so much more natural to use for various cuts and the weight was a welcome change. The fit and finish were excellent.The downside was gaining the awareness of what's available and what a difference it can make, for a small cost….

    Awesome knife - our first Japanese knife, love the WA handle. One reviewer was disappointed with the finish on the handle - my perception as a part time woodworker - it has fine grit in the finish intentionally to aid grip - it is NOT poor quality - the very smooth red band supports that theory. Love the Yuki!

    Could not be happier with this purchase. I dug deep in my pockets for this piece but it is definitely worth every penny.

    I watched the videos about the knife and assumed it would be heavier, but I was wrong. It's very light for a blade-heavy knife. Balance point is further than where one would have a pinch grip, just as the video said. The aesthetic is just simply stunning and edge OOTB is exceptional. All in all a quality knife. Definitely worth the investment. Thanks CKTG for the fast shipping!

    Amazingly sharp knife out of the box. Not used to large-ish knives but this was a pleasant surpise.
