The Masakage Mizu Gyuto 180mm is very traditional in look and feel. From the rustic kurouchi finish, the cherry wood and resin handle, to the basic utilitarian aesthetic, it screams traditional in every waya good thing, because that tradition encompasses the finest craftsmanship and devotion to the cause of cutting!

The knife is constructed with an Aogami #2 carbon steel core hardened to 61-63 HRC. This inner core is then wrapped in a reactive cladding layer using a hammer forged san-mai technique. The carbon deposit on the blade is retained to enhance performance and add a traditional aesthetic appeal. While the rustic kurouchi finish will inhibit oxidation, this knife is all carbon steel construction and will patina with normal use. The handle is oval shaped and made of cherry wood with a marbled resin ferrule.

Short gyutos are gaining in popularity and for good reason. Small work areas and small ingredients are obviously two such reasons. However many chefs and home cooks like the added controllability and stiffness of a short blade. They are particularly valid choices for budding chefs starting to establish their knife skills as they are far easier to control than a long gyuto. This is a great knife for many reasons, but the primary one is its ability to slice and dice with the best of them, all the while being affordable, easy to sharpen, and just plain fun to use.

    I have a lot of Japanese knives now but I really love this knife. It’s beautiful out of the box and gets a nice patina over time. Really easy to sharpen and holds an edge for a very long time. I’ve had this knife for at least 9 months now before writing this review.

    My favorite knife to use in the kitchen for almost any task. It even cuts through bread with absolute ease. I paid the extra $15 to have it sharpened when I ordered it a few months ago and it has held its edge ever since then. I use a ceramic honing rod in between use just for maintenance. Very affordable knife from a very talented black smith.

    Bought this knife for my girlfriend as her go to kitchen knife, we both love it. The shorter length offers great control in tight spaces and is easy to handle for a beginner. The fit and finish on the handle isnt perfect but the blade itself makes up for it. Great knife!
