Japanese handmade knives are celebrated for their rich characterful aesthetics and high level of performance. While many of these knives command a premium price in return, knives like this Zakuri Aogami #1 offer the Japanese kitchen cutlery experience at a very competitive price making them outstanding values. The Zakuri is san mai construction with a Hitachi Aogami #1 carbon steel core and a reactive iron cladding. Aogami #1 is known for excellent edge taking and very good edge holding properties. While the knifeís construction is fully reactive the kurouchi, or blacksmithís finish does limit oxidation. The handles are d-shaped rosewood with black plastic ferrules. A notable characteristic of the Zakuri line is the pronounced upsweep to their profile toward the tip making them particularly adept at rock cutting. HRC 60-61.

    This knife was just as I'd hoped it would be. I purchased a Tosagato bocho several years back and always wanted to try out a gyuto, but could not get one without an upgraded handle. It wasn't a big deal, but I wanted what the knife makers had originally created. Finally, I have one and it is great. OOTB was not so good, but a quick touch up and it was ready to go. It is bigger and bulkier than what I usually use, but not as big as a takeda. The handle is okay. For the price, it is a very good blade. Highly recommended.
