The Gyuto Knife by Masahi is an extraordinarily beautiful and sophisticated kitchen knife from a young blacksmith in Sanjo City, Niigata. Masashi’s knives are light, beautifully balanced, and a joy to use. Gyuto is the classic chef’s knife, although Masashi makes his a tad deeper than some, more like a Santoku.

This knife has a polished SLD steel blade, a charred chestnut handle, and a resin ferrule. SLD steel from Hitachi benefits from a high carbon content that holds its edge well, is tough, easy to sharpen and maintain, and with a 12% chromium content is very nearly stainless. It’s laminated to an outer cladding of SUS stainless steel, polished to a mirror finish.
