Yamashin White #1 Gyuto 240mm. This authentic Japanese traditional kitchen knife line features hand-forged double-layer white-paper steel blade (white #1) but is very reasonably priced.
These are every day kitchen knives that many good cooks love to use in Japan. They sharpen really well and hold a nice edge. The grinds on these knives for the money are impressive which makes them a great overall value. If you've never tried a good Japanese knife and don't want to spend a ton of money these would be an excellent choice. Care for carbon steel knives is simple. Just wipe them dry after you use them and don't let water or acid linger on the blade. The knife will patina over time adding to the great rustic look of these knives.
We upgraded these recently with a nice, extra-large walnut octagonal handle with black pakka wood ferrule. Great for those of you who have big hands and like a larger handle. Many of our pro users request large handles like these so we thought we would accommodate them.
Blade length: 240mm
Overall length: 400mm
Spine thickness at base: 2.8mm
Depth of blade at base: 50.39mm

I bought this knife used. It looked a little chippy but i sharpened it from 800-5000grit and ground out the uneven part and it got super sharp in minutes. It has a nice pinch grip and choil relief. The handle is cheap but comfortable.
I have been looking at this knife the 240 for a while. The first thing I did test my new knife . this is my First Japanese Knife .It was very sharp. I shave a potato. The Yamashin Is a great Knife for the Money. was on sale for $83.00 , The handle is fine , But you could updated to your liking .
CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
