When the Masakage Yuki line was introduced it quickly garnered attention for its beautiful, elegant aesthetics. As more enthusiasts and pros put these knives to the test, their reputation grew for their performance. This 210mm gyuto couples Hitachi Shirogami #2 steel, reputed to take one of the keenest edges available in cutlery, with a uniquely thin grind resulting in a delicate, high performance edge. While Shirogami #2 is a carbon steel and will patina with use, upkeep is easy with stainless steel cladding.

    5  Great knife, June 19, 2019
    Posted By: Nicholas Fore - verified customer

    A couple weeks into work at a fine dining, high volume restaurant in the NY area, using this as my main knife with a wide variety of produce and proteins (mostly fish). Sharpening weekly, 3k and 8k King stones, haven't needed 1k yet. Handle is unfinished and gets stained easily, recommend oiling/waxing it when you get it.

    After watching Steve's review of this knife I decided to get one! I was keen to try a 'white' steel knife as I have 2 'blue' ones. I'm blown away by the build quality of the knife: blade rustic finish/grind/ chiselled kanji plus an awesome handle fit - I love the reverse taper!

    The factory edge is pretty good (I have not felt the need to resharpen it) and the hybrid stainless cladding + carbon blade does not seem to need too much care and feeding (less patina development that my 2 blue knives).

    The balance is blade heavy, but this seems to be the trend for wa handled knives and works well with this knife design (Now I'm finding when using more neutral yo handled knives that I'm going - oh yes! A western handle! Then having to adapt my grip and cutting style).

    Overall, loving this knife!

    I was like a giddy kid waiting for Christmas after I ordered this knife. Even when ahead and got it expressed shipped so I could have it for the weekend at work since Saturdays are a big prep day. All I can say, is wow. Firstly the fit and finish is insane, this knife is obviously made by a man with over 50 years of experience because it shows in every detail. Also the recommended Saya looks super sharp with it too, happy with that addition as well. The oobe on this thing is great. Probably going to ride this edge out for a little while just to see how well it holds getting beat up on poly boards for hours a day. All-in-all I am incredibly happy with my purchase and would HIGHLY recommend this knife, and website, to anyone, whether working professional or at-home chef.

    Posted By: tim levadnuk - verified customer

    I bought this knife to take over as the workhorse in my collection. I've used other Asian knives and German knives but the sheer quality of this one stands alone. The fit and finish was great plus the oobe was razor sharp. after using it for a few months i had to sharpen but mind you i use this knife everyday around 8 hours each day. So overall i love this knife. If you are looking for high quality at a far price than go no further than the Masakage yuki 210 gyuto

    This was my first Masakage purchase and I can say with confidence that it will not be my last. This Yuki was a love at first sight attraction and I must say I was in no way let down when it arrived. I have been using it daily for about eight months now and it is still a joy to pick up each time. It is thin behind the edge and just glides through product. I can say that I am happy with the fit and finish as well. I have not had to resharpen or touch it up since owning it and the OOTB edge was right where I wanted it, surprisingly. Normally when I get a knife it needs at least some stropping but this was not the case.As I said I have been quite happy with it overall and the edge retention is great from the perspective of a home cook. How that will translate for a pro chef, I know not. The bottom line is that this is a very good knife that I feel anyone would be happy adding to their collection. If you have the chance to pick one up, don't hesitate.

    I came from a Global professional series knife to this one. I had been looking for quite sometime to find just the right knife for a lefty. A coworker has another Masakage series and after looking it over, I had made my decision that I would be investing in a Masakage soon. I settled on this fine piece of work and placed my order. Three days later I get this thing out of the box and I am super pleased with the looks. (I had already went home for the day from work, so I had to wait to try it out) Needless to say, everything you read about the Masakage Yuki series is spot on. I couldn't ask for a better knife at work. RAZOR sharp...mine was uber sharp right out of the box. Fit and finish is amazing. I'll definitely be looking at another Yuki series or possibly the Shimo series for some of my other needs.Mark was a great help along the way with answering all of my questions as well. Top notch company ran by top notch folks!

    5  What a knife!, November 22, 2014
    Posted By: Matt Paine - verified customer

    After months of research and reviews I have pulled the trigger and bought myself a Yuki. Only one word comes to mind when you first place your hands on it, "WOW". The initial fit and feel in my hand was nothing but positive. The knife is much lighter and nimbler in the hand than I had expected. The fit and finish is exactly what you would expect from reading reviews. No gaps, rough edges, or defects in the handle or blade. When I ran the knife through the first ingredient, (a very soft skinned tomato), only one thing came to mind, light saber! It pushed through the skin and mushy interior of the tomato without deforming it or spilling it's juices. I have only been serious into kitchen knives for the past 2 years and this knife has put a smile on my face. I would recommend this knife to any home/hobby cook.

    Well my first of the Masakage series and I'm very impressed. Sharp right out of the box and thin behind the edge and nice and light. The handle is comfortable and ever at 210mm (more like 215mm it's good enough to use in a pro kitchen all day. White 2 is very quick to sharpen while the stainless steel jacket makes care minimal. And the usual great service by Mark.

    Bought 5 of masakage knives for my mother. Have not tried them myself - would not comment on performance. F&F however is nice and the knives look really beautiful. My mother fell in love with the blade finish instantly.

    After careful review of many knives, I chose this one as my first from CKTG. I am very pleased with the quality of the knife. It is very well balanced, the fit & finish are almost flawless, and the blade is extremely sharp out of the box. I am looking forward to doing business with CKTG again to add more knives to my kitchen collection !

    What can I say? I LOVE this knife! Bought it about 10 months ago after meticulous research on CKTG and time has proven that I chose wisely.I've used a variety of knives and handled quite a few more doing the Quick Look product videos for CKTG. There's just something about holding a Masakage - you can feel the soul and craftsmanship that go into creating these great kitchen tools.The Yuki 210 Gyuto looks fantastic, has lower maintenance stainless cladding over the carbon steel core, comes super sharp OOTB, and it cuts like a dream. The Yuki's are very thin behind the edge and the combination of the grind geometry and refined rustic finish help food release as well. The edge profile shape is very versatile, and the tip is thin enough to fly through onions, brunoise shallots, mince garlic, etc. The blade also has enough weight to help cut through product. It's not a laser, but it's not heavy either.I have found the White #2 core steel to be minimally reactive in normal use with moderate upkeep while prepping. Once you get a good basic patina on the edge, you can go to town with this thing!The grind and edge are also 50/50, so it's perfect for this lefty.This is just a fun knife to use and a great knife like this helps make prep more enjoyable (at least for me it does).If you are looking at this style of Japanese Gyuto, I don't think you can go wrong with the Yuki 210 or it's big brothers the 240/270.
