Details

Our handmade Yoshihiro Mizu Yaki Aogami Super Blue High Carbon Steel Kurouchi Gyuto Chef knife are unparalleled in their performance. Mizu Yaki is a meticulous process of pure water quenching that draws out the hardness of refined steel while infusing it with enough resiliency to perform consistently in the most exacting of conditions. Exemplifying the most intricate techniques of forging, layering, and hammering, Kurouchi translates as Black Forged and is a traditional Japanese method of crafting high carbon knives that are stain resistant. This unique style of forging offers stain resistance in the form of an unpolished rustic finish. Super Blue High Carbon Steel with a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 64-65 is considered to be the top of its class in high carbon steel metallurgy. It is ranked above Blue Steel #1 and is second to none in hardness and edge retention. It is sandwiched in between stainless steel in the traditional Warikomi style to add to its durability and ease of maintenance. It takes a very high degree of skill to create knives of such exceptional performance and exquisite beauty with a steel of this caliber and is a testament to the extraordinary skill of the artisans. Preparing delicious meals starts with taking wholesome ingredients and using the best tools such as a high quality chefs knife to make every meal into something special. From dicing, slicing, and chopping fresh produce from a farmers market to carving a roast chicken straight from the oven, even the simplest tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional. *This Kurouchi Gyuto knife does not fit with our Saya(Wooden Sheath)

I bought this for my son who's a professional chef. His comment is that this knife is light and very sharp. It feels like an extension of my arm. Ypshihiro Cutlery was very helpful answering all my questions. They will definitely get my business again.

Only criticism is the dark part of the finish, has a rough texture that grabs food when cutting and towels when trying to dry the blade. Hit mine with some very fine wet/dry sandpaper on the sides and the spine for comfort, smoothed it out nicely and while not maintaining that flat black rustic look, left a nice patina finish on a much more useable knife.

Where I live they say the best knife is the one you go for every time. This is an absolutely amazing knife, while i can't say its the knife I go for every time as I have different knives for different things, I can most definitely credit this knife for what its worth. The price is on point, the quality cannot be denied even by my chef, who is one of those guys with 1000$ knives, as an excellent blade. I sharpen my own knives as well as many of my co-workers and this is by far easier to sharpen than the VG10 supersteel blades are. The maintenance shouldn't be considered a trade off or downside, if your profession is cooking in a real kitchen where you need a real quality blade then you should have the care and passion to wipe a wet blade off and spend 20 seconds at the end of your shift to put a drop of oil on either side and wipe it down.

I absolutely love this knife. The blue steel gives it an excellent please rustic look. The blade is razor sharp out of the box. The handle is very beautiful and comfortable. In my opinion, the knife is very well-balanced and ergonomically correct. Since purchasing the knife, I have purchased several other Yoshihiro brand Japanese knives. I will be purchasing more in the future.
Worth the price Review by Andrew Tennenbaum

Incredibly sharp out of the box, and visually stunning. This knife glides through food with little effort, and I know will only be better once I stone it properly. It has some ever so minor imperfections where the tang and handle meet, which I see as a charming reminder that the blade is shaped by hand, not a machine, though some may find this bothersome. It will certainly discolor some over time, but is a truly beautiful piece of art out of the box. The tiny rust eraser that comes with it actually works, as I tested it on a Wushof carbon steel knife and was able to remove a couple of nasty spots. Overall I am initially very impressed with this knife. It is hard to say it is a "good value" given the hefty price, but in relative terms, I can't imagine being more impressed with a mass produced shun or Kramer in the same range. If you are a chef or avid cook, I highly recommend making this your go to chef's knife.

I received my knives within a few days of ordering them and used the once they arrived. They were extremely sharp right out of they box, so sharp my wife was afrade to use them. I've had no issue cutting heavy root vegetables or meat and have had no issues with cleaning or taking proper care of them. they also hold there edge very well. I am extremely pleased with these and recommend them.

Unbelievable sharp. Nice looking in a rustic way.

This is the hardest steel other than the very expensive powdered tool steels.

It is hard to think how this could be any better.

If you really know how to sharpen a knife like this it's great Review by Craigis1

This is my first Japanese knife and full carbon knife...so here goes: If you really know how to sharpen a knife like this it's great. That said, you have to sharpen this knife frequently...probably more than most cooks/chefs want to do or have time to do. It does get sharp as a razor but does not hold that edge for long...most users would want to sharpen every two or three uses...fanatics every 1 or 2 uses. But...this knife is light, weighted for good balance and fun to use. Also, remember that this is a carbon knife so keep it dry (wipe frequently while using); rust happens pretty fast. Oil (that comes with it) every once and a while...just a drop on each side of the blade (be careful spreading the oil...very sharp knife). Strongly consider stainless steel (or some stainless/carbon content before purchasing/committing to this kind of knife...$200 to $300. I now know more and will consider my next Japanese to be a blend.
