Yoshimi Kato has taken the reins of the business that his father-in-law, Hiroshi started and is making some of the best blades coming out of Echizen today.

At 180mm, the Kato VG10 Suminagashi Gyuto knife is as small as gyutos get. It is a good choice for lovers of shorter blades or those with very restricted board space. It is also a great choice for prepping garnishes and other smaller items. This knife will appeal to rock and push cutters alike. Its 50/50 grind will also be useful to both left- and right-handed users. It has a nice thin spine that tapers towards the tip and it also exhibits a fairly thin grind behind the edge.

The blade is constructed with a core steel of VG-10 stainless steel which is prized for its great edge taking and holding characteristics. VG-10 is stainless steel with a high carbon content of 1%. Trace elements include 15% chromium, 1% molybdenum, 0.2% vanadium, 1.5% cobalt, and 0.5% manganese. The steel was first created by the Takefu Special Steel Company and is the most popular stainless steel used by the big Japanese knife manufacturers. The inner core, or hagane, is covered with multiple layers of nickel damascus steel which is then etched to reveal the stunning pattern.

Its good looks and balanced feel are further enhanced by a well-made oval rosewood handle with black pakka wood ferrule. This really is a beautifully constructed knife at a great price.
