The Kurosaki Laser AS Gyuto 210mm is a fantastic knife suited for almost all of your cutting and chopping needs. Made by Kurosaki-San from Echizen. Itís small enough for fine detail work and processing but big enough for tackling all but the largest of ingredients. The laser like size and weight give this knife a quick and nimble feel. Its small thin tip simply flies through food, while its fairly flat belly shape make it a great choice for both rockers and push cutters.

It boasts a nicely finished spine with a slight distal taper towards the tip. It is a great looking blade but not in a bling kind of way. The really nice grind is accentuated by the application of a sand blasted artificial shinogi line leading to a very thin edge.

The AS line features the wonderful Aogami Blue Super steel. Renowned for its ability to take on a screaming sharp edge and hold that sharpness through extended use. This knife has a san-mai construction using a softer stainless steel as the jigane so only the edge is reactive. This makes the knife a breeze to maintain compared to other high carbon types.

The handle is made from rosewood and pakka wood in an octagonal shape for easy use by left or right handed users. There is an optional saya available for protection and storage.

    5  Perfect purchase , October 10, 2017

    I have both the 210 and 240 and they're equally amazing. They hold a razors edge with minimal maintenance and are unbeatable for the price point. They'll out perform far more expensive knives and can stand up to every kitchen task. Light weight, sharp as you could wish for and low maintenance. The patina they form around the AS edge is stunning and individualizes each knife. I only wish this set had better availability as I would like to own more of this line.

    5  Frighteningly,and beautifully sharp, May 27, 2017
    Posted By: Miguel - verified customer

    I never wanted to change my Shun Bob Kramer when working the line, but this knife just made me switch favorites. This knife is so light and so sharp! I cut through prep and do fine cuts with it. Most of my chefs are impressed on my cuts. All the reviews on this knife has been high, and for a good reason.

    At the price, I would say this knife is a steal.

    5  Truly Amazing. , February 26, 2017
    Posted By: Nick McAfee

    This knife is amazing. It is infinitely better than any kitchen knife I have ever used. The blade is aptly named the laser, because it glides through food effortlessly. I was on the waiting list for the 210 and the 240, and this knife became available first. I could not be happier that I snapped this one up. As a 5'11" guy with blocky hands, this knife is perfectly sized. The 240 would probably perform in just as spectacularly, but as a home cook I don't think that the extra couple inches are necessary for what I use it for.

    The handle and blade are truly beautiful, but the blade's performance is perhaps even more fantastic. This thing will slice through meat and veggies with no resistance and stays insanely sharp. I strop it quickly every couple uses and store with oil and doesn't to lose any edge.

    Whether you are a professional or just a cooking fanatic I cannot recommend this knife enough.

    5  I love My Knife!, December 6, 2016

    I bought this knife 2 years ago. It was my first japanese blade. I learned to love it more and more everyday, especially now that I started working in a professional kitchen. I was sharp OOTB, but it is even sharper now that I learned how to sharpen it on a stone (King 100/6000). Blade is thin, light, nible, well balanced and dangerously sharp. I think this is an amazing knife for the price. Great place to start if you want to get into japanese blades!
