Tsunehisa AUS10 Damascus Gyuto 180mm Purchase options

A great combination of durable and easy to care for steel with wonderful looks thanks to the suminagashi finish this well balanced and light gyuto is a great knife for a wide range of jobs in any kitchen.

First Impressions

Very light and thin, the AUS10 is a nice and nimble knife that's got a good level of out of the box sharpness and a nicely finished, even grind 

Beauty

The suminagashi finish is a classic Japanese technique used to create the impression of marbling on paper, or in this case on steel and looks incredible.

Each one is absolutely unique and there's much to enjoy just looking at the blade and the octagonal rosewood handle contrasts the blade beautifully. This is definitely one of the most visually striking knives we sell. 

In Hand

Light, well balanced and with a comfortable octagonal handle it's a joy to cook with this knife.

Durability

The AUS10 steel is a lot like VG10 but offers a little more impact resistance although we'd still obviously say to be careful with your cutting technique it's a good choice for those who want performance and easy sharpening.

It's definitely worth mentioning that the longer knives in the range have a small amount of lateral flex due to how thin they are so might suit a more delicate technique.

Ease of Care

Rinse and dry after use and ideally store your knife on a rack, in a saya or blade guard or even in the presentation box if you wish. Easy peasy!

Our Verdict

The AUS10 hits a great price point for those looking at their first Japanes knife or perhaps expanding a collection with one of these.

They're certainly beautiful and easy on the eye but they also perform well straight out of the box and we'd have no hesitation in recommending them before they sell out.
