Myojin Naohito SG2 Gyuto 180mm Purchase options

A fabulously finished gyuto from of Japan's rising stars and top level sharpeners.

First Impressions

Straight out of the box the SG2 feels impressive and sharp, and in all fairness you'd expect nothing else from someone who's well known for his sharpening and finishing work on Konosuke's FM Fujiyama line.


This is Myojin's first line of knives made and marketed under his own name and it's clear he's got a real eye for subtle beauty and understated style which is what makes him such an exciting blacksmith to follow. 

The migaki finish is delicate and the taper down to the SG2 core draws the eye the length of the blade and paired with a classic teak handle we think these are some great looking knives for sure.

In Hand

The finish is something that's a level above many knives and the subtle rounding off of the edges along the spine and heel just feel quality and show why you're buying a knife from someone who has a great deal of skill and experience in this area and who has worked on some very impressive knives already in his career.


SG2 is a great choice and popular among many blacksmiths for its ability to take and retain and edge and it's easy to recommend it as one that's going to perform for a long time.

Ease of Care

Store your knife on a magnetic rack or use a guard and follow our normal care instructions and this is a nice easy knife to sharpen and look after.

Our Verdict

We're very impressed with the overall finish and obvious quality of Myojin's work when you take into consideration his relatively young age and that currently he's currently best known as a very skilled sharpener. 

His personal ambitions are to spend more time learning and creating knives as this enables him to create even better knives and so it's exciting to stock these knives which are sure to become highly sought after as his brand and personal collection of knives increases. 

The SG2 is a stamped knife rather than forged so this provides a consistent base for Myojin to work his magic on the finish and grind as he develops his skill and branches out on his own.

You're buying an early knife that boasts an excellent finish and sharpeness from Myojin's existing sharpening experience.
