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.

    5  Zakuri blue #1 210, October 18, 2015
    Posted By: Benjamin

    Zakuri knifes have personality to each different user. I have seen three different zakuri 210, and each one looks and feels different. Be it how often you sharpen, or how often you wipe it off after cutting. Mine still has its blue finish due to my obsessive drying of the blade after every minute of cutting.
    The other knives that I have seen are almost silver with a bronze hue due to rust(?). Still very sharp.
    I recently sharpened a white steel #2 for 45 minutes and didn't come close to the sharpness of 15 minutes worth of sharpening this blade. Highly recommend this knife. It is a little heavy but you get used to it.

    A great value for Blue #1. Exactly like Steve's video. Big, thick-spinned workhorse knife with a very nice grind. Steel looks awesome with the core blue steel shining proud. The handle feels fine, the ferrule is tight and the choil could be sanded a little if desired but it's fine.. It feels like a very well-crafted knife for the price and I highly recommend this to any production chef to use on a daily basis. Very impressed-great price for Blue steel #1.

    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.
