The standard bearer of Japanese kitchen knives in the west is undoubtedly the gyuto. It is the eastern version of the western chef knife.

The Itto-Ryu hammered 240mm gyuto is an outstanding example of the breed. Made with a core of Hitachi white paper #2 steel, the blade is strengthened and protected with a layer of stainless steel and a further, partial cladding of carbon steel in a kurouchi finish. This is one of the smoothest kurouchi finishes we have encountered and one that has proved to be very durable.

The Shirogami 2 core takes a very steep edge and holds it through the rigors of extended cutting and chopping sessions. It is ground with a symmetrical 50/50 convex blade path. Together with the oval chestnut handle, it is perfect for both left- and right-handed users. The blade is fairly thick at the spine but has a beautiful distal taper which together with the thin grind behind the edge gives the blade outstanding cutting abilities. The core steel is hardened to 61 HRC.

The fit and finish of the blade is on par with some of the best knives out there. Both the spine and choil are beautifully rounded, again showing characteristics normally associated with knives at a far higher price. Performance wise, it plays way outside its weight class. The slightly heavy, forward balance and lovely grind result in a knife that glides though soft produce with ease while dispatching harder product with aplomb.

If you seek an introduction to high performance Japanese knives or are wanting to add to your quiver of fine blades we cannot recommend this knife highly enough.
