Masakage Black Forged 210mm Gyuto - Yakka Handle
Fukui 210 Gyuto
Each knife-making district in Japan has a distinct style gyuto an this blade is unmistakably Fukui. Thin where it needs to be and thick where it counts this multi-purpose blade toes the line between agile and robust. The handle is set a little way back from the blade to favour a chef-esc pinch grip that will have you rocking maniacally.
If you prefer your chefs knife a little longer or a tad shorter, or possibly favour a different handle, order from the Chef's Armoury Bespoke range of Fukui blades.
Masakage Black Forged Knives
Hand forged goodness all the way from Fukui prefecture. Easy to care for stainless steel is beaten into submission around a core of super blue carbon steel. This is the best of both worlds especially if you are new to the upkeep of carbon steel. Aogami Super is famed for its superior edge retention and it is an absolute pleasure to resharpen if you are a stoner like us.
The hammer marks are hand peened during the cold forging stage and the black scale is left for your rustic enjoyment.
- Made by hand, the pattern and finish of each knife will vary
- Australian Yakka handles (colour and wood grain will vary)
- 50/50 edge grind suitable for left and right handed users.
- Read the separate care instructions tab
Over time a natural patina will form on the exposed edge of carbon steel. The edge will change colour. This is the nature of carbon steel. If knives are left wet after use they may rust. Rust spots are easily removed with rust cleaner. For maintenance we recommend camellia oil and rust cleaner.
