Masakage Koishi Aogami Super Gyuto 180mm

Think of Masakage as a home for a host of talented blacksmiths, collectively acting under one roof and name. Founded in Echizen by Takayuki Shibata, a famed Japanese knife sharpener, Masakage includes various lines as unique as the blacksmiths who craft them. This collaboration ensures that every knife purchased from Masakage is a quality product from Echizen.

The Koishi line, one of Masakage's most popular, features knives forged by Kato San. Each knife boasts a core of Blue Super Steel (Aogami Super), enveloped in stainless cladding with a hammered (tsuchime) pattern and an attractive matte kurouchi finish. This combination yields a high-performance core steel with a high contrast hammer kurouchi finish, making any knife in this line a true visual stunner.

The 180mm Gyuto is a versatile size, perfect for both home cooks and professional chefs. It's compact yet capable, making it an essential tool in any kitchen.

Twice As Satisfied!

My second knife from Tokushu and I'm twice as satisfied.

The first one was a Yu Kurosaki Fujin petty knife. Killer. Great looks. Great blade. Great buying experience.

So, why twice as satisfied? Well, my second knife was a Masakage Koishi Gyuto. Unbelievably great knife. Same great price. Same great service.

Tokushu has great prices, great service, fast shipping, a great selection and the team is top shelf. You can't go wrong.

Perfect first Japanese Knife

I wanted to buy my first hand forged Japanese knife and the consensus online and from a friend was to start out with a Masakage gyuto. This ticks all the boxes for a perfect first Japanese knife. Carbon steel with stainless cladding makes it a great cutter without having to baby it. Its got a super sharp edge, but it's not too thin where I have to worry too much about it chipping. The 210mm length handles any cutting task without feeling too big and unwieldy for someone who isn't a pro chef. It feels good in my hand and it looks good too. Lastly, it's priced as a premium hand made knife without being astronomically expensive like some other Japanese Knives. All in all its a great middle of the road, good at everything first knife. I'd also be completely happy if it was my last Japanese knife, but nobody ever stops at one.
