NAKAGAWA HAMONO Silver #3 Kasumi Migaki 240mm Gyuto No Handle

When you see a Satoshi Nakagawa knife in the wild, you can immediately tell it is forged from someone with a tremendous amount of skill. That is because Nakagawa-san's teacher was none other than the famous Kenichi Shiraki of Shiraki Hamono.

Of course every blacksmith must one day pass down the torch to enjoy their days in the mountainside, as opposed to the hot soot covered factory. Nakagawa-san was that man to whom the torch was handed too when Shiraki-san retired in 2020. Satoshi Nakagawa is not only capable of forging knives using a variety of steels but can also create honyaki knives, which requires a tremendous amount of skill and discipline.

Here, Nakagawa's offering is one made of Silver 3, also known as ginsanko (gin-san-ko: silver-three-steel). It is a steel made by Hitachi Japan, specifically for tools and kitchen knives. Silver 3 is similar to VG10 with approximately the same percentage of carbon C0.95-1.10. However, knife enthusiasts tend to prefer it to VG10 because it feels sharper.

Ah, we have finally arrived at the conundrum with no end, the 240mm gyuto. Those who love a 240mm gyuto will without fail and without any subtlety express their obsession with this particular length of gyuto. With 30mm extra than the typical 210mm gyuto, a 240mm gyuto is a great knife for those with bigger hands, larger kitchens, bigger tasks, larger... you get the point! A gyuto is already a versatile knife style, at 240mm, you gain even more versatility. And don't you dare tell someone who loves 240mm gyutos that it's too large to slice garlic, because they'll prove you wrong.
