Masakage Mizu – 210mm Gyuto
Masakage Mizu Collection is handmade by Anryu san. Knifemaking is in Anryu san’s blood. His family started as knives makers in the early 1870’s. He started apprenticing as a knife maker under his father, Katsutoshi Anryu, after graduating high school in 1959. He is a fourth generation knife maker and has been working as a blacksmith for well over 50 years.
The Blade of the Masakage Mizu is super thin and cuts like a razor. The Hard Aogami #2 steel is laminated between softer layers of carbon steel.
These knives have been named Mizu (water) as the blue/black Kurochi finish gives the impression of cold, deep water. Paired with an oval cherry wood handle these knives represent excellent bang for the buck.
Because the blade is not stainless it requires a bit more care. Keep the blade dry to avoid tarnish
and if you ever see a bit of rust on the blade remove it immediately with a coarse dish scrubber and soapy water.
Gyuto (Chefs Knife):
The Gyuto is a Japanese designed chef’s knife. Gyutos vary widely in design but generally range from 210mm to 270mm in length though smaller and larger examples can be found. Like the familiar western styled chef’s knife, Gyutos are commonly tall at the heel, have a reasonably flat profile toward the heel for chopping, a belly toward the tip of the blade for rock cutting, and a pointed tip for precision work.
