Yoshimi Kato makes knives for several leading brands including Masakage and Kanehiro. This new line is the first to bear his name. As always, we are very impressed with his quality of grinds, fit, and finish. The overall aesthetic appeal is quite stunning, especially in the case of this new range. They are made from VG10 steel which was specifically designed and manufactured for the kitchen knife industry.

The result is a blade that is easy to use and to sharpen. It holds a sharp edge and is very durable. The edge steel is then covered in a multi-layer damascus cladding made from a soft stainless steel. These are really easy knives to maintain.

The gyuto is 180mm with a blade height of 44mm. These knives really are great all-arounders. Their compact size belies their many abilities.

The stunning blade is matched to a nice oak wood handle in an octagonal shape.

      Kato Enju 180mm Gyuto, December 24, 2021
    Posted By: Pili

    Been wanting to get a Kato VG suminagashi 180mm for awhile and finally pulled the trigger on the Enju , especially because the Kato oval black sumi hardly gets restocked nowdays. But the Enju totally met my expectations for a shorter , ultralight , agile gyuto for line service use, stunning looks , superb fit + finish with rounded and polished spine and choil, beautiful executed grinds, good glue up job and shaping on the simple but attractive mono wood wa handle. OOTB edge was sharp but a little toothy . A few swipes on my ceramic rod cleaned it up. Will garentee get ultra sharp after running on a stone progression. She can be a little sticky on certain product due to the matte finish acid etch but not enough to annoy me. Overall I'm very happy and love this knife!! Mahalo CKTG!

    Pretty spot-on video review of the product.
    Itís a beautiful knife, but the cutting edge could be better.
