First Impressions

Much like the SRS13 version of this range, we think the AS Migaki is a great looking knife and it boasts impressive sharpness right out of the box.


It's a great looking range. If you're looking for a classic polished migaki finish and particular attention to detail, the rounding of the heel edge makes for a stunning and elegant knife.

In Hand

That rounding of the choil really does make the knife very comfortable in the hand and it's a joy to use. It's quite unusual to see this level of finish quality in a knife at this price point.


Aogami Super is a widely used steel because it's easy to sharpen and retains a good edge and with the stainless cladding it's a knife that's ready to work and will be easy to keep in top shape for many years.

Ease of Care

A reactive core steel and stainless cladding mean this is a great low maintenance knife with a impressive level of performance so beyond the normal care instructions it's perfect for someone who wants to enjoy the properties of a carbon steel core without too much worry about maintenance.

For longer term care, we'd recommend a carbon steel care kit.

If you prefer a stainless version of this knife, check out the Tsunehisa SRS13 collection.

Our Verdict

This is a great range combining a subtle design aesthetic with the migaki brushed finish, a high quality finish standard with attention to detail like the rounding of the heel and spine all with a classic AS carbon steel core for edge retention. 

The AS Migaki are a great collection of knives, especially at this price point.

Our aim is to measure and photograph our products as accurately as possible but due to many items being handmade, finished or using natural materials, there can be minor variance in measurements and things such as blade or wood finishes can vary. We will always endeavour to provide the most accurate measurements, photos and descriptions of our products.

Some measurements such as HRC are provided by manufacturers and should therefore be used as a guide.

Protection & care for this knife

We recommend the 240mm magnolia saya or a large gyuto sized (27x5.5cm) blade guard if you're not planning on storing this knife on a magnetic rack or block
