Made in a small family run blacksmith shop in Miki, Japan, Misuzu knives are a beautiful new addition to our store. This 240mm gyuto
is made with AUS10 stainless steel, a top of the line steel from Aichi Steel. It has a gorgeous polished damascus finish which is made using a softer stainless steel. This not only adds to the great looks of the blade but results in a knife that is easy to maintain and care for.
The blade length on this knife is slightly longer than advertised, at 245mm. The weight and blade height are slightly below average for this length. The spine is quite thin and therefore the knife has very little taper. The tip is very finely crafted and will be especially appreciated when more delicate cutting work is required.
Of course the standout visual element of this line of knives is the highly polished damascus cladding. It really sets these blades apart from most others. Together with a high level of fit and finish and a nicely made solid ho wood and buffalo horn octagonal handle, the Misuzu AUS10 gyuto strikes a handsome pose. But make no mistake, this is a performer first and foremost. And we are really pleased to be able to bring this new line of kitchen knives to your attention and kitchen.
