  • Super Blue Steel is the most recent addition to the high carbon steel family. The most familiar of the high carbon steels is the white and blue steel #1 and #2 which are ranked by their hardness and wear resistance levels. Ranked starting from the best the list goes Blue steel #1, Blue steel #2, White steel #1, and White steel #2. Super Blue Steel ranks above all of these with an HRC level of 65-66 and a wear resistance that outclasses Blue Steel #1.

    In the hands of master craftsmen the steel can be forged and sharpened into a world class knife that boasts top class sharpness and edge retention. The extremely sharp blade will allow for the most accurate of cuts to be made with consistency and with ease. Furthermore the blade has the ability to perform at that level for an extremely long period of time because of its high wear resistance.

    The Yoshihiro Super Blue Steel Clad Gyuto is clad in 2 layers of full stainless steel that provides durability and protection without sacrificing its sharp cutting edge. The blade edge, where the Super Blue Steel is exposed, can patina with use but preventive measures using tsubaki knife oil and removal methods using rust erasers are available.

    The knife comes complimented with a handcrafted octagonal rosewood handle which is comfortable for both left and right handed users. A lacquered magnolia wood saya cover comes together with the knife for easy and safe storage.

    After putting this knife through it's paces, I have a new favorite knife. The edge retention is crazy, over an 8 hour shift I had to steel and strop it once to keep it shaving sharp. It fits my hand very nicely and it's perfectly balanced. I couldn't be happier.

    UPGRADED TO THE 9.5"

    Absolutely stunning piece of cutlery. It's super sharp right out of the box (I did the straight cut test on paper and it had no resistance). I'll never go back to Global knives or anything else for that matter. Personally I like a heavy knife so I do wish it had more weight to it but it had more to do with this design so that's on me. I'll know which knife to buy next time. If you haven't realized this yet, super blue steel is the highest grade of all the other blue and white steels. So you're getting this at a ridiculous price. I asked them why it was cheap and they said it was because they were trying to promote it, so you can bet that this will cost a crap load more in the future.

    In terms of customer service, Bruce was great to talk to, I didn't expect him to call me when I had concerns about shipping. He actually went out of his way in handling the matter -- in which case I don't want to mention the details because I don't want people taking advantage of them (they're a small business). This is how much I value their business. We had a good 10min conversation about knives as he schooled me on a few types of knives.
