The Tsunehisa AUS8 Gyuto 210mm is made with a mono steel construction of AUS-8 stainless steel. The blade is hammer forged and sharpened by hand.

AUS-8 is a lower carbon version of AUS-10 and is similar to 440C or D2 steel. It is made in Japan by the Aichi Steel Company. It is a very good steel for making kitchen knives given its high level of corrosion resistance coupled to an ability to sharpen easily to a razor-sharp edge. This is very resilient steel so it makes for an easy to care for edge and knife overall.

The blade is quite thin—certainly not a laser, but it does have a nice distal taper towards the tip. Very well done for a knife at this price point. The full tang is also stainless and the bolster is integrated into the blade. A good-looking brown oak handle is attached to the tang with three stainless pins. A nice engraved set of kanji characters is a surprise addition to this well-priced knife.

Anyone looking to enter the world of Japanese kitchen knives would do well to include this very attractive gyuto in their short list.
