We are big fans of young blacksmith Yoshimi Kato. He is a second generation smith who learned his trade at the feet of his illustrious father, Hiroshi Kato. After working for his father for many years he took the reins of the business when Hiroshi-san recently retired. Kato-San works at the famous Takefu Knife Village cooperative where he makes a number of different knives under various names including Kanehiro and Masakage.

SG2 is a Powdered Metallurgical stainless steel. It is used for making surgical instruments, metal cutting tools, and kitchen knives. The attributes of SG2 include its high edge retention ability, ease of sharpening, and moderately good wear resistance. The inner core of SG2 is clad with a beautiful multi-layer damascus stainless steel to further protect and strengthen the core. This is a stunning looker and its aesthetics echo the performance characteristics.

The blade is stiff and taut. It is a mid-length for gyutos and with its thin profile and light weight it is a nimble and dexterous cutter. The Yoshimi SG2 Gyuto 240mm is beautiful to behold and use, and highly recommended to any chef looking for a perfect combination of form and function.

    Knife is beautiful, stays sharp much longer than my other knives. The damascus design has a weird friction to it, making it not slide as easily through some fruits/veggies as my other knives. I was able to remove some of that roughness towards the edge with a quick rub of green compound, so you can rest easy that the friction will naturally go away with enough time and use.
