Few knives combine premier cutlery steels and experienced traditional blacksmithing at extraordinarily accessible prices the way this Tanaka Kurouchi 210mm gyuto does. The core steel in this gyuto is Aogami #2 hardened to 62-63 HRC. Aogami #2 is a high-quality carbon steel offering an outstanding combination of keen edge taking and durable edge holding.

The Aogami #2 core is wrapped in a soft carbon steel cladding, making the knife entirely reactive. While patina is typical during use, care should be taken to keep these knives clean and dry between uses to prevent the formation of rust. The blade wears an attractive kurouchi finish, which will inhibit oxidation. The d-shaped handle is a practical design made with ho wood and a black plastic ferrule. Since these are handmade knives, they may vary dimensionally. The knife comes with a beautiful custom handle made by our woodworker, Brandon Norsted.
