Yoshimi Kato worked for his illustrious father, Hiroshi Kato, for many years before taking over the family business. He is certainly one busy blacksmith, making knives for several leading brands including Masakage and Kanehiro. This line bears his famous name and, as with all of his knives, we are very impressed with the quality of grinds, fit and finish, and overall aesthetic appeal.

This line is made from the popular stainless steel called VG-10, which is known for its great edge-taking and edge-holding characteristics. VG-10 is also known as V-Gold 10 and is a stainless steel with a high carbon content of 1%, plus trace elements that include chromium, molybdenum, vanadium, cobalt, and manganese. The steel was first created by the Takefu Special Steel Company and has now become one of the most popular stainless steels for use in kitchen cutlery. The inner core of VG-10 has an outer layer of a damascus stainless steel. The inner core is revealed under the damascus which then transforms to a great looking nashiji (pear skin) finish.

Many chefs like the added length and height that 270mm knives bring to the table. This example boasts a really nice 55mm height coupled with a full 270mm edge length. The added ease of maintenance from the VG-10 and stainless cladding makes this a perfect knife for a large busy kitchen environment.
