NAKAGAWA Mizu Honyaki Blue #2 Gyuto 240mm No Handle

Embrace the peak of craftsmanship with the NAKAGAWA Mizu Honyaki Blue #2 Gyuto, a blade that stands as a testament to the legendary skill of Satoshi Nakagawa. Under the tutelage of the renowned Kenichi Shiraki, Nakagawa-san has honed his craft to perfection, specializing in the rare and demanding art of honyaki knife-making. This 240mm gyuto is not just a knife but a masterpiece, featuring a brushed migaki finish that strikes the perfect balance between stunning beauty and unparalleled performance.

Honyaki knives are often showcased with a mirror finish, highlighting the polished hamon as a true showpiece. However, this knife is designed with practicality in mind, boasting an absurdly thin blade with a brushed finish to prevent food from sticking, ready to deliver the ultimate cutting experience. After a year of anticipation, this blade has been expertly sharpened by Mr. Shotaro Nomura, ensuring a level of performance that is nothing short of mind-blowing.

This exceptional gyuto uses the mizu-Honyaki technique with Aogami #2 steel, renowned for its rarity and the striking gunome hamon it produces. The dedication to creating such a knife is evident in its perfect balance, sharpness, and aesthetic appeal, guaranteed to impress the most discerning of culinary professionals.

The first honyaki in my collection

A warm recommendation from Tony about a very special knife. I received the knife in three days with a heart beating at 200. When the box was opened and the combination of a shiny and polished blade a delicate hamon wave woooow. A stunning work of art by Satushi Nakagawa.
