The Karaku Blue #1 gyuto knives are constructed using the highest grade of carbon steel in the industry. Aogami #1 steel is held in high regard by most knife lovers and users. 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 burnt urushi octagonal handle that is stabilized for years of worry-free use.
If you have not tried an Blue #1 steel knife this could be your time to experience this super steel at a truly affordable price.
