This gyuto is made by the legendary Yoshikazu Ikeda. He is the current chairman of the Sakai dentokogeshi (traditional skilled crafts)association. 

SHAPE: Gyuto. This is the Japanese version of the western chef knife.

STEEL: Aogami (blue paper) 1 steel. This is very similar to white paper steel but with tungsten and chromium added to it which helps with edge retention and slows down rusting. The difference between blue 1 and 2 is the amount of carbon present with 1 being the highest.  

FINISH: Damascus or Suminigashi. This finish is created by repeatedly folding the steel and then forge welding this to the outside of the knife.

HANDLE: Octagonal ebony handle with buffalo horn ferrule.

LENGTH: 210mm in length.

MAKER: Yoshikazu Ikeda - Sakai City, Japan

BEST FOR: If you can’t quite stomach his thousand pound honyaki this is an excellent second best.

 

SAUNDERS SAYS: "I’m not usually a fan of damascus finishes but this thing pops."
