The most popular size gyuto among professional and home chefs is the 240mm variety. It is the perfect length for processing almost any vegetable or protein, up to the largest cuts. This knife will appeal to rock and push cutters alike. Its 50/50 grind will also be useful to both left- and right-handed users. It has a nice thin spine that tapers towards the tip and it also exhibits a fairly thin grind behind the edge. This is a well-proportioned knife with a generous height and lovely profile. The oak octagonal handle with buffalo horn ferrule is finished to a high standard.

The blade is made from the ubiquitous Shirogami #2 high carbon steel. A soft iron cladding is forge-welded to this core steel to protect the alloy and absorb shocks. It also adds lightness to the overall package. The cladding is still reactive so care needs to be taken with cleaning and drying between uses. The soft cladding receives a very nice hairline finish which subtly fades into the lower blade road and then reveals the polished edge of the White steel.

We are very excited about our new line of knives and our partnering with this new young blacksmith, Mr. Mazaki. Traditional to look at and boasting fine craftsmanship, the Yahiko Shirogami Hairline Gyuto 240mm is a strong contender in the full size gyuto arena and one worthy of your consideration.

    5  Better Than Expected, April 10, 2019

    Love the evolution of the Mazaki knives! His grinds and profile have only got better since his first offerings. Such a great knife at its price point. It performs as well or better than several knives I paid two to three times more for. Great distal taper and very thin behind the edge even with the very stout spine. This knife has a very confident feel to it yet whispers through product.
    The heat treat of the Shirogami steel is as good as I've experienced. The edge retention is stellar for this steel and it sharpens so easily.
    An excellent performing, very versatile knife and great bang for the buck.
