This line from Masutani san features VG10 stainless steel. Masutani is a small blacksmith shop located in Echizen in the Fukui Prefecture. They are a new addition to our CKTG store, but they are already gaining some very favorable reviews for providing really good quality products at some incredibly low prices. This particular gyuto is a perfect choice for home cooks or pro chefs looking for an easy-to-use and maintain a knife. One that will not require large work surfaces or spaces. And one that will be nimble and easy to control.

The basic profile is pretty standard, gyuto. A small flat area at the back with a nice gently curved belly. As such it will be a good choice for cutting styles of all kinds. The blade has a softer stainless steel outer cladding to enhance protection, aid with food release, and increase the aesthetic appeal. A black pakka wood single-piece western-style handle is mated to the stainless bolster and attached with two stainless pins.

This knife is easily one of the best values on our site!

      Fun little performer
    Posted By: yigitak

    I have this knife for 3 weeks now,sharp and polished edge ootb,This is a thin knife but blade feels solid and rigid,gets very thin behind the edge.
    Used it at work almost everyday,banging against poly boards,i dont baby it around and use it for almost everything,this guy just takes it ,even cut through cases of delicata squash and since blade so thin it doesnt wedge,and afterwards still can cut through paper
    sharpened it 3 times on whetstones,after 3.time edge feels tougher and keeps it a bit better than ootb edge.Raising and removing a burr wasnt a problem. Im ok freehand sharpener but wouldnt say a good one.
    If you are gonna use it at a pro kitchen,i would recommend to round down the choil and spine,and make sure handle and tang is sealed.

      Nimble, Great Value
    Posted By: Ed - verified customer

    Very comfortable handle, blade super sharp OTB (just stropped it and it began cutting newspaper like it wasn't even there). Balance is good. It was quite simply a pleasant surprise. Very minor ding on top of spine near bolster, but otherwise perfect. Would definitely recommend.

      First Japanese Knife
    Posted By: Kyle
    1 people found this review helpful

    This is my first Japanese chef knife and it is unreal how much of a difference it makes when cutting. This knife is the perfect size and weight and slides effortlessly though anything I've thrown at it so far. It's a joy to use a real quality knife, and I find myself looking for recipes and dishes with lots of tedious knife work just so I can use this bad boy!

      Great Value starter blade
    Posted By: Christopher Miller

    Price to value, this knife brings it, and offers a bit of style, too. Fit and finish is decent; very easy to keep up with finish, and edge geometry. Very comfortable and balanced in-hand. Side to side will outperform Shuns or Miyabis at a higher price point. Great gift for beginners!

      Great Knife

    This is my first knife of this type and I must say that I'm impressed with it. I have been using Henckels knives for years, but the Damascus composition of this one is a "cut above."

      Masutani VG10
    Posted By: Stephen Song

    This Masutani knife certainly performs as well as knives that cost twice as much. It compares well to my Misono UX10. It's extremely well balanced and light weight. The fit and fishes is great and the VG10 Steel holds its edge well.

      Masutani VG10 Damascus Gyuto180mm
    Posted By: Faith - verified customer

    This blade is an excellent and inexpensive choice. It came very sharp but if ever I need to hone it, I just run it along my diamond steel and its as good as new. Cuts beautifully. All my coworkers are jealous!

      Amazing Christmas gift
    Posted By: Greg Kocal - verified customer

    I received this knife as a gift for Christmas and just like my santoku from Masuntani, I am thoroughly impressed! Sharp out of the box and cuts everything like soft butter! I can't wait for CKTG to get more knives from Masuntani available to buy because I definitly will be buying more as they become available!!!

      Fantastic knife at twice the price
    Posted By: Vasky B - verified customer

    Hard to believe this knife is priced where it is. Sharper than the reviewer said out of the box and handles really well. Great for work.
