Yahiko is the name of a mountain near Sanjo, Japan, where these knives are made. It renowned for the beautiful Shinto shrine located at its base. When we conceived the brand, we assigned several leading blacksmiths from the region the task of making a range of knives using a variety of steels that each smith likes to work with.

This blade is made with VG-10 stainless steel, which is a highly regarded stainless alloy used by many top knife manufacturers. This steel provides good corrosion and wear resistance while retaining the ability to produce a very sharp edge. The VG-10 core is clad with stainless damascus for great looks and excellent performance. The Yahiko gyuto is a perfect choice for first time Japanese knife buyers who are intimidated by the maintenance regime required by high carbon steel blades. The edge of these knives is a symmetrical 50/50, so this gyuto works equally well for a right- or left-handed user. The knife is finished with a nice walnut octagonal handle with a maple ferrule.

The fit and finish of the blade and handle are of a high standard, equally matched by the excellent performance the knife is capable of. This is a knife that represents a high point in the price performance curve and one we highly recommend.
