Yahiko knives are made in Sanjo City, Japan, to our specifications using a variety of steels and they’re identical (except for the name) to the Tojiro DPs. The 210mm gyuto featured here is stamped from a VG-10 stainless steel san-mai sandwich, which has been heat treated to 60 Rockwell. We have designed this knife for all-around versatility in cutting and chopping. The shorter length allows for use on small boards and in restricted spaces. It is also a very comfortable knife to handle and makes a great choice for chefs new to Japanese knives or who are looking to refine their cutting skills. It is not a tall blade so those with smaller hands will find it a good proposition in terms of light weight and ease of use. The shorter dimensions also make it able to deal with both larger ingredients as well as small items and intricate cutting and slicing techniques.

We have asked our makers in Japan to construct a tough and easy to maintain knife that will not break the bank. The well-finished stainless bolster and black micarta handle add a degree of sophistication and comfort that belies the incredibly keen price of this fine kitchen implement.

      Excellent knife, July 23, 2020
    Posted By: Zachary Denzer - verified customer

    I got this because I thought it would be good for me as a beginner cook in a nice restaurant. It immediately got praise from the sous chef and the chef de cuisine! It feels well balance and solidly constructed. I haven't sharpened it yet but it's been fine out of the box! Would recommend to anybody.

      Solid product, February 26, 2020
    Posted By: Jesse

    Good edge, not crazy thin, but forgiving and definitely moves through product easier than German knives. My only issue is the balance sits right at the bolster so I am more comfortable with a racket grip rather than pinch. I'd love it in a 240 with a little more blade height. It's a big price jump to a 240mm wa handle gyuto so I am happy with the 65 i paid for it.

      Fantastic knife, even better customer service!, June 10, 2019
    Posted By: E.G. - verified customer

    The knife is fantasticnimble, dynamic, well-finished (especially for the price!)but the real star here is the CKTG customer service! Everyone so spoke to was informed, courteous, and helpful, and the finishing/sharpening service by Mark made an already solid knife truly excellent. Sharpest blade out of the box I've had the pleasure to use!

      Great Value, May 26, 2019
    Posted By: Chris

    I am giving this knife five stars for it's price to performance ratio. Understanding this was ~$60, I was not expecting $300 performance or fit and finish. What I got I was very happy with, and bought mostly to try out a Gyuto style without breaking the bank. I love it and will be buying a higher end Gyuto in the future. In the mean time this thing came out of the box ready to work, and I haven't even taken it to a stone yet.

      Great F&F, great value, April 15, 2019
    Posted By: Dan - verified customer

    I got this as a gift for a friend, and tested it out before giving.
    All in all its an elegant, bright looking blade. While it doesn't have the hand-crafted charm or attention to geometry and grind that other offerings on this site have, it remains an excellent all-rounder that gives you good Japanese steel, a nice handle, and a knife ready for kitchen work.
    I felt like the spine and choil could use a rounding/softening, and a few minutes with some sandpaper did the trick.

      Solid, January 12, 2018
    Posted By: Reid - verified customer

    Bought this yakiko vg10 and a fujiwara fkm 210mm as Christmas gifts for 2 of my cooks. Both very solid knives for the prices, but this guy is really cool. Needs a bit of polish out of box but the construction of this knife I really unexpected for the price. Could definitely use some love on the handle and spine for comfort. Fantastic knife, takes and holds a great edge.

      Great buy, December 20, 2017
    Posted By: Howard C - verified customer

    I bought this knife as a gift so I can't comment on it long-term, but my initial impression was very good, for the price. Factory edge on it was screamingly sharp. The micarta handle should last forever in normal use. This is a real bargain for a VG-10 blade.
