Yoshimi Kato is the son of famed blacksmith Hiroshi Kato. Like his father, he makes knives for several leading brands including Masakage and Kanehiro. He works from the Takefu Knife Village cooperative, one of the centers of the knife world. Following in the footsteps of an illustrious father is never an easy thing to do, but blacksmiths have done this for generations and it is a situation in which most seem to flourish and grow. Yoshimi Kato is proof of that.

This new line of knives bearing his name is made from a very special steel called SG2. This is a high tech powdered metallurgical stainless steel that is used for making surgical instruments, metal cutting tools, and kitchen knives. It possesses a high edge retention ability while being moderately wear resistant and easy to sharpen. The core steel is clad with a softer stainless steel to protect and add strength to the blade. The cladding is a multi-layer Damascus construct that is quite beautiful in its execution and finish. Our A saya is too short and our B saya is loose. We recommend the felt protector.

The 210mm gyuto is a popular size for many home and professional chefs. Its compact dimensions are perfect for smaller hands or work areas, but it is still large enough to take on almost every type and size of ingredient. The knife is well balanced and has a rigid feel to it. Coupled to a fine looking and well executed handle made from rosewood and pakka wood, this is an easy to care for blade fit for any chef in any circumstance.

      Stunning knife., July 13, 2020
    Posted By: Ryan - verified customer

    Amazing knife. Great curve to the edge. Very light. Handle is extremely high quality wood. Thin is very thin, which I love to precise knife skills. If you are a professional cook or chef, probably do not buy this as a line workhorse, or do but keep it in a Saya at all times.
