Another addition to the Tojiro VG10 Hammered line of kitchen knives is this compact and practical gyuto. 180mm gyutos are as short as this style gets. At this length they are a great choice for chefs who prefer compact knives or who work with restricted board space. This petite cutter is also a great choice for prepping garnishes and other smaller items.

We find the combination of a VG10 core with the rustic look of the hammered kurouchi finish to be both practical and attractive. So while the knife is basic in terms of its finish and materials, it is a package that is easy to maintain and comfortable to use.

VG10 is, hands down, the most favored of all stainless steels in Japanese knife manufacturing. It is used by most makers, from the big guys to the smallest one-man shops. VG10 was developed by the Takefu Specialty Steels Company, so it only makes sense that most of the local smiths employ it. Tojiro endows these knives with some really well executed grinds that will surprise many with their abilities in hand and on the cutting board.

The Tojiro VG10 Hammered Gyuto 180mm is a knife that comes in at a budget price but looks and feels like a much higher priced item. A great starting point for anyone looking to enter the world of Japanese kitchen knives.

      Surprisingly good utility knife, September 16, 2020
    Posted By: Chaz - verified customer

    Due in large part to mother nature taking particular offence with the gulf coast region, I've been using this thing as a work knife more that a kitchen knife. Cutting ropes, tie downs, rubber tubing, vines, clothes, zip tiesMties,bags, shaving feather sticks to start fires, shaving my face etc. It's holding up great and I regret not getting a saya when I ordered it, but am supremely happy I got the finishing service. Eventually I'll get around to using it for actual food prep but for now it's the best utility knife I could ask for.

    Received knife in a timely manner, great shipping. The blade was very sharp out of the box! handle was not smooth as pictured but a little rough, I lightly sanded and put on a coat of poly. Overall very happy with the purchase!
