210mm gyutos occupy the short end of the gyuto range and as such are perfect for those with smaller hands or restricted work areas. The shorter dimensions also make it a good all-around knife, able to deal with both larger ingredients as well as small items and intricate cutting and slicing techniques.

This is the same knife as the stock 210mm gyuto blade with a different handle on it to give you a choice of color. These are available in limited quantities only. This knife is fitted with a traditional walnut octagonal handle and maple wood ferrule.

Yahiko knives are made in Sanjo City, Japan, to our specifications using a variety of steels. The 210mm gyuto featured here is stamped from VG-10 stainless steel which has been heat treated to 60 Rockwell.

VG10 is a highly regarded stainless alloy used by many top knife manufacturers. This steel offers good corrosion and wear resistance while still retaining the ability to produce a very sharp edge. The edge bevel is 50/50, so this gyuto works equally well for a right- or left-handed user. It is a good choice for first time Japanese knife buyers who are intimidated by high carbon steels. It is also really competitively priced for those looking to enter this specialized field.

This is one of our top recommendations in the entry level Japanese knife arena.

    4  Nice knife, May 6, 2017
    Posted By: Eric L

    For the price this is a very good knife. Awesome looking with the octagonal handle, got mine in rosewood! I have been using it on and off at work for prep and on the line. It is a bit too thick, certain foods wedged more than others. I found delicate work like shallots to be difficult with this knife, as the tip does not thin out much. I feel like after a good amount of sharpening it would perform better.

    Overall it's a nice addition and works great for most tasks

    I had a hard time believing that this knife was priced at $89.95. Excellent handle with a little grit to it so it's easy to hold without slipping. Nice workhorse grind so it holds it's edge very well during long shifts. Fantastic value!!!

    3  Yahiko 210 vg10 gyuto, April 28, 2017
    Posted By: Vincent huynh - verified customer

    Fit and finish are perfectly acceptable. No major grievances overall but the blade is a bit on the thick side. Especially that it is thick immediately behind cutting bevel. Not much flex at ALL in the length. Which I wouldnt want much of but this feels more like a German chef knife in that regard. Edge came sharp but only just. Overall shape of belly and top spine dropping to point is also very wide and almost blunt at tip end. I would also say not very good hand clearance from board on the 210mm version. If you have slightly large hands go up to the 240mm for more knuckle clearance. Vg10 steel is still respectable and easy to get fine edge. Stainless property is very good. Handle material I purchased was walnut I believe. Looks good feels ok. Overall this thing is chunky and not nimble in any way. But for 90 bucks a pretty good starter tool I would say. Maybe pass it on to a line cook who needs a nice tool. For the money just get something like a suisin inox instead.

    For the money the performance far outweighs its low price. I have some knives in the 600.00 range and up but I find my self reaching for this more often than not. It truly is above beginners knife. Just because of the low price this knife is far from cheap.
