This 240mm gyuto from the Masakage Yuki lineup is crafted by master blacksmith Hiroshi Kato. It is constructed of a Shirogami #2 carbon steel core, clad in an easy to maintain stainless steel. Shirogami #2, known for keen edge taking, couples with the Yuki’s incredibly thin grind to make the Yuki a purebred performer in the kitchen. Aesthetically, the Yuki is loaded with character, wearing a refined but rustic nashiji (pear skin) finish. Individual knives may vary from the posted specifications. The core steel of this knife is reactive and will patina with normal use.
