Shiba calls this knife a gyuto but it's really a kiritsuke. He fashions his blades out of R-2 stainless powdered steel. This is a very popular stainless alloy among knife aficionados. The extremely thin blades of knives made of R-2 steel can be sharpened to a narrow degree angle which results in an amazingly fine cutting edge. The R-2 steel is hardened to between 62-63 HRC, which is an impressive number!

To aid with protection, strength, and food release, the core steel is encased in a softer stainless alloy which receives a rough but attractive hand done finish. Some finely executed hand chiseled kanji further embellish this lovely looking blade.

Shiba's gyutos are general purpose knives able to tackle a wide range of common cutting and slicing tasks. Their reverse tanto profile gives the knives a dexterous and delicate tip and a unique and eye catching aesthetic. In fact, this tip shape is common to all of the Kotetsu knives.

This fine knife is further enhanced by the addition of a lovely custom octagonal handle.

    5  Gorgeous knife, February 16, 2020
    Posted By: Paul H - verified customer

    This is a gorgeous knife with outstanding build quality. It has to be seen to be believed. Without dispariaging the knife in any way, I feel that the choil is situated a little too far from the handle for my personal liking, and the blade is not as stiff as I wanted. Maybe a 210 mm blade would be better for me. At any rate, this is a top quality knife.
