** This gyuto has very minimal patina, and a slightly slanted handle installation. It has a very unique, nice distal taper and tall profile, with a flashy yet clean hammered look. Great for any Matsubara hamono collector or one who likes super tall blades!

The Blacksmith 

Tanaka Kama Kogyo is the leader of the Matsubara hamono workshop and directs a small team along of around 5 employees along with his son who is slated to take over operations after Tanaka-sans retirement. He forge welds the steel he uses to make his knives in house which is becoming a rarity even amongst skilled blacksmiths in Japan. They work in the Nagasaki region of Japan and make some truly awesome knives which are loved by knife enthusiasts for their edge retention and tall blades. 

The Shape

The Gyuto is the Japanese equivalent to a standard western style Chef's knife and is THE most versatile shape available. It can be used to break down fish and other animals, chop vegetables with both an up and down and rocking motion, slice cooked and raw proteins and anything else you can think of. We highly recommend this shape to anyone looking for that one go to knife they can grab with confidence for any task. 

Knife Care (Stainless Clad)

  • This knife is made from 3 layers of steel using a technique called Sanmai (Forge welding). It involves laminating a piece of Carbon steel with two pieces of Stainless steel giving the knife all the benefits of the carbon steel (Edge retention, ease of sharpening, cutting feel) and the Ease of Maintenance from Stainless steel. 2-3 millimeters of the carbon steel is exposed at the edge of the knife and is susceptible to rust and discouloration if not properly maintained.
  • Simply Wipe the knife with a damp cloth immediately after use to keep it from rusting or discouloring.
  • Never put your knife in the Dishwasher. The extreme heat will ruin the wooden handle.
  • Highly acidic ingredients (Onions, Tomatoes, Citrus) Will cause rust and oxidation to happen faster, thus the user must ensure the knife is wiped clean immediately after working with such an ingredient.
  • Should any rust form it can be removed using a rust eraser or a mixture of Baking soda and water to simply scrub it clean.
