The Zakuri Karaku AS Gyuto
240mm knives are constructed using the highest grade of carbon steel in the industry. Aogami Super
is known as the king of carbon steels and is held in high regard by most knife lovers and users. The ability to accept and hold the sharpest of edges is one of the best attributes of Aogami Super knives. They also sharpen up with relative ease.
The 240mm gyuto
is the most popular-sized knife we sell and this one has a nice profile for both rocking and push cutting. The knife is adept at most cutting, slicing, or chopping tasks. It is also small and responsive enough for fine detail work on garnishes and other items.
It now comes with an upgraded rosewood oval handle.
