Looking for a high quality and trusty sidekick for every job then this definitely fits the bill! It hits all the positive notes in a gyuto - well balanced, excellent sharpness right of the box and looks wonderful.


An excellent sharpness out of the box and is nimble in hand thanks to the reasonably thick tapered blade and well finished white #2 core. 


The nashiji finish on the stainless cladding paired with the high polish of the white #2 core really is stunning. It's subtle and understated which we love and contrasted with a dark wenge wood handle we think it looks wonderful. 

As the edge develops a patina over time and darkens it will continue to provide a lovely contrast with the stainless cladding. 


The gyuto is very comfortable with a slightly thicker than average spine near to the handle and a balance point just around the heel make cutting easy and enjoyable.


White #2 clad in stainless is a popular combination for a good reason - it's easy to sharpen and retains an edge well and with minimal extra care it's going to last you a lifetime. 

Ease of care

It's a reactive core steel so will develop a patina over time but simple care and maintenance of rinse and dry after use and you'll have no problems. 

Value for money

For the money you're definitely getting a great knife, it's very well made and finished and looks superb. Yoshikane Hamono have a long established and worthy reputation for creating high quality knives and this is one of them.
