Masakage Yuki – Gyuto 240mm


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.

Masakage Yuki

Hand Crafted from Shirogami (white) carbon steel, then clad in a soft stainless steel. You get all then benefits of a high carbon blade like great edge retention, easy sharpening and silky smooth cuts, with only minor maintenance issues (possible rusting).

They are made by Hioshi Kato, a blacksmith with over 50 years experience.

All Masakage knives are handmade in Japan by Blacksmiths chosen for their excellence!

Care Instructions:

  • Wash and dry the blade by hand immediately after use. Dishwashers are very bad for all knives.
  • Use a soft cloth to wash the blade. Avoid abrasive dish scrubbers and powders as these can damage the finish of your beautiful knife.
  • Do not cut through bones. You can certainly cut along/beside bones, but do not cut into bones. This can, at worst, chip the blade.
  • Never use this knife to cut frozen food. I’m sure you have a 4×4 somewhere in your kitchen for this job.
  • Never twist, cleave or prise the blade.
  • Always use a wooden or plastic cutting board. Never cut on bamboo, glass, marble, slate, a plate, china, marble, arborite or anything harder than steel.
  • Store knives in a way that the blades will not knock into each other.
  • Never transport knives unprotected.
