After 20 years in the knife business, we don't get wowed very often but the Kohetsu Blue #2 Wa Gyuto 210mm has smitten us. If you are looking to enter the world of carbon steel Japanese knives, we highly recommend the Kohetsu Blue #2 line of knives and this 210mm wa gyuto in particular.

This 210mm gyuto is a great cutter at a fantastic price. The nicely proportioned handle is balanced by the finely ground blade. Itís an attractive knife full of character while being easy to maintain.

While carbon steels require some care in that they can discolor or rust, the addition of stainless cladding reduces this to just the exposed edge. The extra care needed on this edge is offset by the much easier sharpening characteristics of the metal. Even a novice sharpener will feel comfortable bringing this edge up to its full potential.

The knife comes with a very good asymmetrical grind that is about 60/40 making it great for left- and right-handed users.

You will be hard pressed to find a better value in a knife than this lovely 210mm Kohetsu gyuto. The knife is topped off with a very nice urushi finished handle made of solid oak wood in an octagonal configuration.

      Very nice basic kitchen prep, October 8, 2022
    Posted By: Hjalmar Hake

    This blade is a little stiff, but still nimble enough to work finer veggies, mincing and herbs. It’s very comfortable but not refined, it gives you the feeling of not being delicate but still light enough to be fun.
    I bought it as a present for my girlfriend as I already have enough kitchen knives and I found this to be a great option for the price. I have several knives at this price point, and this one is definitely a good deal.

      Great knife, September 23, 2022
    Posted By: Michael Wilson

    This is my first gyuto. Fit and finish seems to be good, blade is straight, handle is good etc.
    I had the sharpening service done. The sharpness and ability to glide through food surpassed my high expectations.
    Great value for money, and a great knife period.

      Should have bought more
    Posted By: Ray

    Fit and finish is pretty insane (especially at this price point). Handle is basic, but very ergonomic and balances this knife right where I want it. I have a few higher ends that this one definitely rivals in terms of performance (even the straightness of the blade and handle install was on par). I got the sharpening service for a great reference, so it came grape drop sharp. Tip was perfect. Just don't cut hard exotic produce with it unless you have the know how. That's what the first low end Tojiro you bought is for haha
    Seriously though, this knife should be massively overstocked. I should have bought a few more as backup Christmas presents! Almost makes me reluctant to post a good review, as this might be the best kept secret for knife enthusiasts.
