Sakai Takayuki Kurouchi Tsuchime Aogami Super Series Gyuto 240mm

Stainless cladding on Aogami Super Steel is arguably one of the best innovations of the 21st century. Let's face it - Aogami Super Steel is phenomenal. The feel, the edge, the edge retention are all exceptional. Additionally, the stainless jacket not only enhances its appearance but also significantly reduces maintenance. As Aogami Super Steel contains chromium, it darkens over time, developing a functional patina that helps prevent corrosion.

It's advisable to get it professionally sharpened initially. While they arrive sharp, a professional touch can enhance its performance. Remember to carefully wipe down the blade before storing it and ensure it's completely dry. Paired with a soft cutting board, like a Hasagawa, you might maintain an excellent edge for 6-12 months, with only occasional touch-ups on a loaded strop. A blade guard is highly recommended to protect this fine knife, especially when stored dry.

This Gyuto exemplifies Sakai Takayuki's commitment to high quality and finish, featuring the remarkable performance of Aogami Super Steel. The blade is clad in a tsuchime, kurouchi, stainless steel finish that is not only visually striking but also low maintenance. With an HRC of around 65, it boasts excellent edge retention.
