Hokiyama Gyuto AUS-10 Damascus 240mm (9.5") blade paired with our SharpEdge stabilized wood handles in grey/orange/emerald green/light brown.

Hokiyama Gyuto AUS-10 Damascus in 240mm (9.5") blade length is the Japanese version of the classic Western Chef’s knife.

We paired this blade with our custom maple burl handles in four different colors:

TOKYO NIGHT: Traditional Japanese handle with a modern twist in a dark color named Tokyo Night. The color of these handles varies from light to dark grey, with soft or deep hues of red and swirls of cream. If you like a particular hue, please contact us before placing an order.   
OKINAWA REEF:
Traditional Japanese handle with a modern twist in a soothing, emerald green color named Okinawa Reef. It feels like immersing your hand in shimmering coastal waters during summer.
→ KYOTO SUNSET: Traditional Japanese handle with a modern twist in an orange color named Kyoto Sunset. It feels like holding something smooth and warm in your hand – a glow in the sky at sunset or a burst of bright autumn color.
→ TOTTORI SAND: Traditional Japanese handle with a modern twist in a sandy brown color named Tottori Sand. Inspired by the infinitely swirly Tottori sand dunes found in the western part of Japan.

BLADE SHAPE:
Gyuto is the most versatile and useful blade shape in the modern kitchen. It has a wide profile for easy food transfer and tends to be fairly flat towards the heel, enabling easy and fast chopping on the cutting board. A pointed tip allows piercing and precise, delicate work. A slight curve between the tip and the midsection makes the belly great for rocking the blade back and forth when cutting. It can be used for cutting meat, fish, and vegetables.

HANDLE:
We chose a universal, octagonal shape that comfortably fits the hands of both right- and left-hand users. It offers a firm grip for easy and comfortable use.

Handles are made of natural maple wood, which undergoes a special procedure of stabilization with resin. This ensures a long service life of the handle. During this process of stabilization, a color pigment is added which penetrates the wood in different ways, creating unique patterns. This makes every handle one-of-a-kind.

Color and patterns of handles may vary from what is seen in the pictures. If you like a particular color hue, please contact us before placing an order.

STEEL:
The heart of this gyuto is made of Aichi's AUS-10 stainless steel, which was hardened to around 62 HRC. Due to its high content of Chromium (Cr), AUS-10 steel will resist corrosion very well.

LAMINATION:
The core layer consisting of the harder AUS-10 steel was sandwiched between two layers of softer, more corrosion resistant steel. This technique is called san-mai and is used to protect the hard (but delicate) core from outside factors, such as rusting and physical impacts, which could lead to breakage.

GEOMETRY:
It has a double bevel (symmetrical) blade.

BLADE FINISH:
The knife features a beautiful combination of tsuchime and damascus pattern. The upper part of the blade features a hand chiseled kanji and hammer dents (or  tsuchime finish), which then transform into an intricate damascus pattern that flows down to the cutting edge.

Suitable for first-time buyers of a Japanese kitchen knife. It can also serve as a wonderful gift!
