When you purchase and own a Yasunori you can tell your friends that this is a knife made by just one man. Yasunori-san undertakes the entire production himself, from forging to heat treating, grinding, and edging. This singular purpose and endeavor imbibes the knife with a very cohesive character. One man. One vision.

180mm gyutos are quite unusual in that the gyuto sweet spot and popular size is usually 210mm to 270mm. The shorter length is perfect for those with smaller hands or less board space, or with a need to process smaller ingredients. Itís also just right for people who find long knives unwieldy and hard to handle.

The knife is constructed using Hitachi Blue #2 carbon steel as the inner core, or hagane, with a cladding made from a softer stainless steel. It is a nice light blade, which, when coupled with the short length, makes this a very deft cutter. The face of the blade receives an attractive horizontal brush finish and is adorned with some fine hand-chiseled kanji. It has a 50/50 symmetrical grind, so itís good to go for left- and right-handed users. The blade is coupled to a traditional octagonal handle made from walnut and pakka wood.

This is a very traditional knife made by a man with an ability to realize his dream from start to finished product.
