Karaku AS Gyuto 210mm. The Karaku AS line of knives are constructed using the highest grade of carbon steel in the industry. Aogami Super is known as the king of carbon steels and is held in high regard by most knife lovers and users. The ability to accept and hold the sharpest of edges is one of the best attributes of Aogami Super knives. They also sharpen up with relative ease.

The Karaku Gyuto is the most popular-sized knife we sell and this one has a nice profile for both rocking and push cutting. The knife is adept at most cutting, slicing, or chopping tasks. It is also small and responsive enough for fine detail work on garnishes and other items. It now comes with an upgraded amboyna burl octagonal handle.

If you have not tried an AS knife this could be your time to experience this super steel at a truly affordable price.

    The AS steel on this knife is incredibly sharp! This has made cutting and chopping a breeze! I would highly reccomend this knife. The handle in a beautiful Japanese style handle that is very ergonomic and aesthetically pleasing. Weight is good and solid not to light and not to heavy. Very well balanced knife.

    Working in fine dining, your prep load becomes precise and refined. You end up working through those cheap end Victorinoix knives and they need the be honest several times through out the day, and sharpened once a day.
    I have had this knife, exclusively using it for ALL prep, even cleaning meat..

    Let me tell you what. I absolutely love this knife. I've had to hone is maybe once a week, yet to have sharpened. Everything feels like tempered butter with this knife. Best $150 I've ever spent towards my trade.
    Oh, and don't forget to oil your blade every night before storage.

    Truth be told, I used two drops of EVOO. One on each side of the blade. Wipe her down making sure it's completely covered and not in excess.
    Forgot once or twice, and had a small rust spot to clean up afterwards.
    Ran the knife through a lemon, and used a soft towel to rub all of the rust/quick patina off.
    Allow the knife to form it's own p you can tell this blade wouldn't be a fan of a quick patina.
