The Minamoto Nashiji gyuto is a smallish knife for a gyuto. The blade length comes in at about 203 mm. As such it is adept at multi tasking in most kitchen scenarios.

This blade is constructed from Aogami blue #2 steel with a stainless cladding. The handsome san mai laminated blade construction is used to add corrosion resistance while maintaining strength and durability. A stunning hammered and etched nashiji finish applied above the shinogi adds a real touch of class to this fine implement. The exposed blue #2 carbon core will develop a patina which enhances the beauty of this knife while adding a degree of rust resistance.

The blade has a symmetrical primary grind which transitions into a secondary bevel or cutting edge, which is ground 70/30. But fear not, this is a knife good for both right and left handers. It cuts with a clean and precise action suitable to both rockers and push/pullers alike.

This is a very well made and great looking gyuto which at its $125 price represents one of the best deals on the CKTG site.

    5  Fills a special niche, November 3, 2015
    Posted By: Zoltrix

    Somewhere between the minority camp of people who like the shorter lighter nimbler santoku for everyday veggie work, and the camp of people who think the gyuto is more all-purpose in shape and has a more versatile length: that's where this Minamoto occupies an undervalued and special niche.

    At 203mm it's shorter than most other gyutos, yet, not handicapped in length--203mm after all is exactly the length of a standard 8" chef knife, while still being a good inch longer than your average santoku. Because of its light nimbler weight, smaller size, greater maneuverability, and more versatile shape, it captures the best of both worlds.

    On top of that, it also has
    1. Great fit and finish.
    2. A beautiful blade.
    3. The sharpness of carbon but low maintenance stainless cladding.

    Out of the box edge was good but it can go even sharper. Edge retention is decently OK but not something that stands out as amazing. Blue #2 sharpens easily. All in all, at this price point, and considering the unique niche it fills, along with the feeling of quality, it's easy to give this 4.5 or 5 stars. I'll give it 5 because how it fills such a unique and useful niche.
