Takayuki Shibata is a young blacksmith working out of his shop in Fukuyama City, Hiroshima, Japan. It is here that he developed his very unique line of Kotetsu knives. Kotetsu translates to “ironclad,” which was the name given to the first ironclad battle ship in the Japanese Navy. His knives are endowed with a beautifully formed profile and razor sharp cutting edge. The fit and finish are also of the very highest standards.

The blade is made with an inner core of Aogami Super steel, clad with a softer stainless steel that enhances the strength and durability of this nimble knife. This knife is almost like a scaled down version of his KS clone, and as such boasts a slim profile, shorter blade height and a thin, finely crafted tip. The grinds are really well executed and his attention to details in design and construction are what we love to see in a blacksmith’s work.

The Shibata Kotetsu AS Gyuto is an easy to maintain and sharpen blade. It will hold its super fine edge through a hard day's prep work or for weeks in a home setting. Each knife comes with a very well-made octagonal handle with pakka wood ferrule.

    I rarely write reviews for products (as cliche as it may sound), but this knife warrants one. fit and finish are excellent, the wood on the handle is beautifully treated, feels great.

    But the blade is an even better story. OOTB it was crazy sharp, the best Ive seen. After putting the knife through a few months of heavy prep, and sharpening it quite regularly, I can say its both a joy to use and work on. This gyuto has earned its place in my knife roll, and Im sure you'll enjoy having it in yours.
