Takayuki knives have set the standard for craftsmanship in kitchen knives for 600 years. This gyuto is no exception. Made with Ginsan Steel (also called Hitachi Yasuki Silver-3) and then clad with stainless steel, you have a knife that is incredibly strong but also super durable and easy to sharpen. Matched with an ebony handle and water buffalo horn ferrule, this knife is going to be a stand out in any kitchen. The 240mm gyuto is arguably the most versatile knife in your kitchen, being long and thin enough for most slicing while also being hefty enough for your bigger cutting jobs. This knife also has the beauty of a 50/50 bevel, so left-handed folks can use them too!

    The fit and finish are impeccable, the ootb edge is pretty good, but with a little stone love iban sure it will be great. I have only had the knife a few weeks and I love it, however, in the description of the knife the konji on the front of the blade was supposed to be hand chiseled but it wasnt. The tang was supposed to be exposed slightly as well, but this aslo was not the case. Both were contributing factors to me purchasing this knife (I had narrowed down to 3 knives), that extra attention to detail led me to choose this knife. Although it wasn't exactly what was advertised I am still thoroughly pleased with it and the blade itself easily gets a 5 out of 5.

    Really like the knife although I was pretty bummed cuz it had a little broken tip hardly noticeable but its there and the congi wasn't engrave like it was claimed in the video. But alteast it was nice and sharp and the handle turned out really nice.

    I have owned this knife for over six months. The Ginsan steel holds an edge longer than I need and gets almost as sharp as white #1, sometime I think it gets sharper. The only knock on this knife is the 8oz weight, but maybe that is from the hand forge process. I was unable to duplicate the stiction free demo in the video. That said the knife isn't sticky like production knives.
