Brand new for 2018! The Tojiro Shirogami Hairline gyuto is made from Shirogami, or White, #2 steel. This is a highly regarded steel in the knife world. The alloy is very tough and takes a very keen edge. In the case of this knife, it is clad with a soft iron layer which protects the inner core while lightening and adding strength to the blade. Both metals are reactive, so care must be given to clean and dry the knife carefully. The upper blade road is subjected to a really nice hairline finish, while the lower portion is sand-blasted to offer a nice aesthetic contrast.

The blade itself features a great profile and a nice tip, which makes this gyuto a very good performing knife, fit for many slicing and chopping tasks. This 185mm gyuto is about as short as the breed gets. It is like a fat petty or a santoku with a tip. This is the all-around blade that many home chefs would reach for first. It is able to slice and dice most vegetables and proteins while being versatile enough to handle all kinds of delicate tasks like garnishes.

The blade is mated to a traditional D-shaped handle made from ho wood with a black resin ferrule.

    4  Surprised, January 29, 2018
    Posted By: Frank - verified customer

    Bought this gyuto because the length seemed perfect to travel with. Fairly sharp OOTB but I put it through a 1k, 3k, to 6k just to see if it was really worth fooling with. Trust me when I tell you I was very surprised and thankful. Edge gets screaming sharp and seems to be holding well after several uses. Slight patina on white core, but nothing on the cladding. Nothing wrong with the blade at all, nice even grinds and slightly weight centered toward the handle.Only reason I gave it a 4 star rating is because of the typical Tojiro handle and that damn plastic ferrule. Try as I might, I can't get past the plastic on these things. Will have to do something with the handle. For the money, this knife is a steal. If like me, and you like inexpensive knives that will rust, but yet have good core steel, this knife fills the bill.Frank K
