CKTG Gyuto 210mm Saya A
Usually ships the same business day
The 210mm gyuto is the perfect blade size for most home kitchens where space is at a premium. This all purpose blade is the Japanese equivalent of the western chef knife.

This gyuto is one of the top values on the CKTG site. Aogami Super is among the best carbon steels on the market today. This interpretation comes with impeccable heat treatment for a long lasting edge that will outperform most knives in or above this price range.

These knives are made exclusively for CKTG and feature stainless steel cladding for easy care and added strength. Only the edge will oxidize over time. The grinds are very thin on this knife with good convexing for less stiction. It has a nice progressive grind which Mr. Tsukahara grinds more on the right side than the left and he feathers and thins out the tip for nice cutting performance that will work well for left and right handed users. I shot a video of him sharpening these knives that you can view at the bottom of this page.

The handles are made of ho wood with an octagonal shape and buffalo horn ferrule. If you're looking for a great wa-handled gyuto at a very affordable price, you have found one of our favorites.

Please note, the knife sharpener intentionally thins the edges of these knives to make them perform better, especially on the tip area. Often times you will see a hazy/cloudy scratch pattern as a result. This is not a defect. He is doing you a favor by putting in extra work. Please look at the 4th photo on this page to see it.

    4  Good knife, July 8, 2016
    Posted By: Chip

    Got this knife after buying a few other AS knives and because i didn't have a 70/30 bevel. I have to say im a little bummed about this knife. it gets dull faster than my other AS knives. BUT when it is freshly sharpened it is ridiculous.

    5  Wow! This is now my favorite kitchen knife., July 8, 2016
    Posted By: David - verified customer

    Like most people who cook every day, I have an impressive collection of kitchen knives, including Akifusa, Miyabi, Shun, Takeda, and Tojiro. These are all very fine knives and have given me many years of service. What is it about the Kohetsu that I love? The size, weight, balance and geometry are perfect for prepping veggies. It's nimble, razor sharp and a pleasure to work with. Whoever designed this knife knew what they were doing. And the quality of construction is superb. No frills. This isn't a trophy knife. It's a professional tool that's meant to be used every day.

    I have been sharpening plane blades and chisels for many years, but also sharpen my own kitchen knives at my cabinet shop, located 20 ft from my house. I have offered to sharpen kitchen knives for my customers for about two years. There knives are usually of German make and very dull. Some are worse than dull....almost wrecked, possibly from gardening tasks, but I don't ask, or comment. I have
    learned a lot about repairing and straightening these knives. Of course this seemed to kindle a desire to find out about Japanese blades and learn about the various steels and Rockwell Hardness used by these exceptional blade makers. I have used a couple of Japanese chisels in my shop, and love them, but I live so close to Lie-Neilsen Toolworks (on the Maine coast) that I feel obligated to buy my tools from this great local maker. Much of the woodworking world, and I mean World) feels the same way.

    At any rate, I really fell for the white steels, 1 and 2 and can't believe how quickly my kitchen knives sharpen and the degree of sharpness. This led me to wondering about the blue steels and when I
    could afford another knife from CKTG. When I could afford it I did my research and picked the Kohetsu
    Augami Super. This knife is beautiful, light, thin and sharp. I tested the sharpness by trying a push cut on
    glossy, thin paper from one of my woodworking catalogs...good slice cut, but not push cut. I stropped it
    lightly and returned to the paper......excellent push cut. I used it for a week, then sharpened on 500 grit
    Shapton, 2000 grit Green Brick of Joy, and 6000 grit Shapton Glass. It sharpened to a push cut very
    quickly. It is a joy to use for vegetable prep. I love this steel, this nice light, thin knife and the service
    from CKTG is superb. Thank You

    5  Wonderful Knife, May 19, 2016
    Posted By: Dylan Montanio

    Used this knife for four years of heavy heavy service. Cant speak highly enough of the knife or the quality for the price point. The edge wound up wearing down into the stainless cladding a lot quicker than i would have expected given the RC hardness. However- I think that is more due to my being more familiar with powdered steels in terms of actual use on the line or for banquets. All in all its a total "no bullshit" workhorse knife.

    4  very solid knife, January 1, 2016
    Posted By: Carol T.

    This is a very solidly built knife, with excellent fit and finish. I find the AS a bit challenging to sharpen, which is not surprising given the wear resistance and hardness, but it gets extremely sharp. The feel and balance is very good, though the up-curve in the blade make the handle angle high for me, especially when making vertical cuts in dices. However, it cuts very well, and is a joy to use in general.

    Also, the buying experience from CKtG is always smooth and competent. Great website, great service, and fast shipping! :)

    I own a set of Wusthof knives & This is my 1st Japanase knife. This is the sharpest knife ootb I've ever touched. It's very light & great for long prep hours. I don't think I'm going to take it up on the line yet but it's feather light and very comfortable in your hand.

    Basic look, but the edge gets crazy sharp, good overall feeling working with it. Very good edge retention too, in fact the best I own. But what makes me really love this knife, is the thin profile. Wow, what cutting performance!

    OOB edge was really neat, i thought i would be able to keep it out of the reach of the stones for a bit; though same night i got it after dinner service i was already sharpening it, couldn't believe how fast and nice it got a screaming sharp edge, went from Shapton 500, all the way to shapton 15,000 with my 10˚ angle, then stropping it through horse butt and kangaroo... It got one of the finest edges i've ever seen, the stainless clad makes such an awesome change coming from a moritaka KS, im not that tall so the handle and the height of this knife are perfect for me.

    I was looking for something to send my moritaka to retirement, didn't wanted to pull out my old Shun Premiere, this knife is so awesome i think i will order a backup, just in case it goes out of production. Awesome service from Mark as always, took care of all my inquiries.

    i bought the kohetsu aogami super stainless clad 210mm gyuto after alot of researching. I work at a local restaraunt and i do TONS of vegetable prep. I was looking for a nice light knife that was easy on the hands and held its edge better than anything ive touched(longest through hard use was 3 days tops). When I use this knife I always run it over a couple higher grit(2000 up) hones(steels whatever) after everytime I use it. I have had this knife for aboit 2 months and I am STILL SHAVING MY ARMHAIR WITH IT. I have to say I am more than impressed with this steel and the patina conrrasting with the stainless is a great look. Everyone says this knife is absolutely the sharpest in the kitchen. Easy to sharpen, holds its edge great, the magnolia handle is alot more stain/wear resistant than I had guessed which is a plus. Doesnt do amazingly well with heavy meats like prosciutto or slab cured bacon. Stay away from frozen items and hard vwgetables using a chopping motion. Get this Knife if your budgets around 160.

    Amazing F&F very thin behind the edge, For the price there is nothing else in its league. It will not disappoint, every time i pick it up for prep I'am truly impressed with the quality and grind. For <$200 i have absolutely no complaints. Very professional service from the wonderfully kind team at CKTG, and fast international shipping. Mark made a winner here. If your on the line about this knife, pull the trigger and don't regret anything. The profile alone is worth it...

    I got one of these recently, too. Awesome performance!! Took it up on the J Nats to the Yaginoshima Asagi and stropped it in bare leather. It is still cleanly slicing hanging paper towels after a little over a week of use at home. Grinds are fantastic; sweet potatoes are no problem for this knife! Incredibly light weight and nimble and cuts very very well, like a laser should. Rare to see a clad Laser type knife, but this is one of them! Handle width/height are great for me, but I would like to see the handle a touch longer, felt/looks a bit short to me, but I prefer longer handles in general.

    Great grinds, awesome HT, great cutting performance and great price. What more do people need??

    Damn impressive. Decent box edge and I'm calling this thing a laser period. Like I said if I had my way I'd go thinner and longer on the handle but I don't have bear paws lol. Edge retention is good as usual. All and all one hell of a knife. I took the edge down to my normal 10 degrees and finished up from 220 pro, 1k natural and the yaganoshima. BITCHING. Still push cutting paper after all day beating on poly. You knocked this one out of the ball park Mark.

    I was looking for a hiromoto with a Japanese handle and this knife uses the same exact steel with stainless steel cladding. So far it's been a fantastic knife! Thanks!
