We know the 210mm gyuto is the most popular choice for discerning home cooks, and Tanaka brings us a great one in the Sekiso Damascus version shown here. The beautiful Damascus cladding is made of soft ductile iron to extend the life of your sharpening stones, and the Aogami #2 or blue paper #2 core steel will take really well to them (not that the visits will be all too frequent). With a Rockwell Hardness of 60, the edge will hold for substantially longer than any stainless steel Western blade could boast.

This knife is pretty lightweight with a really well ground convex blade, as Steve will tell you in the video below. Pairing this knife with the 135mm or 150mm petty from this line would create a great tag team on your cutting board, and would not leave you wanting for performance, quality, or raw visual appeal.

  • Blade Length: 210 mm (8.5")

    Beautiful Blue Steel blade and nice otb edge but this one is gonna need some extra care to turn it into what it has potential to be. The handle is gonna need to be replaced , the one on it is porous, oddly shaped and meant for some 25 dollar hack piece. Some complain of poor grinds though I really didn't see much worth a fuss. Definitely not a lazer and profile is tallish. I cant comment much on longevity or edge retention because mine is out getting a new handle but it showed promise with the brief usage and I am excited to get it back. With an extra 100 or so dollars put into this piece you will have something really special.

    Sharpes knife i have ever held in my hand.. Only downside with this brilliant knife is that the steel blade rusts quite fast if the blade is not dryied quickly and oiled in with vegetable oil or vaseline.. But still the knife looks amazingly nice and is lightweighted..
