Masutani – Gyuto 180mm VG10 Damascus


Kunio Masutani :

Masutani knives are made from using some of the best stainless steel and Damascus steel combinations. They are laser cut from pre forged sheets. The well executed grinds and edges on these blades are super impressive. The knife is very easy to maintain on a daily basis and super easy to sharpen.

The 165mm santoku is a great all-around knife for pretty much any chef wanting a shorter length blade coupled with a tall profile and robust stiff tip. These are knives that can replace a standard Gyuto or western chefs knife especially where space or smaller cutting surfaces prevail.

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 style 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.

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.
