We only started working with blacksmith Kyohei Shindo quite recently and after receiving a couple of shipments of his knives we are impressed. So, we have asked him to start making some longer gyutos for our customers. This 210mm is the first of these new offerings.

Mr. Shindo uses a relatively new (to us) steel called SRK8. This high carbon alloy is made by Hitachi and it has been reported to be a similar steel to the ubiquitous White Paper #2, but with some added elements for extra toughness and edge retention. He hardens the core steel to HRC 63+. The inner core steel is clad in a soft iron that retains the blacksmith scale, or kurouchi, on the upper blade road. This adds a bit of corrosion protection while enhancing food release properties. This is still a reactive blade and will require care with cleaning and drying between uses.

Enjin is a name derived from two Japanese words: “en” means flame, and “jin” means blade. We really like the connotation and to emphasize it we asked for a burnt handle finish for these blades!

The Enjin SRK8 Gyuto 210mm is an all-around great knife at a very competitive price. It is perfect for users looking for a smaller chef-type knife that will hold its edge and look good for an incredibly long time.
