Gengetsu 210mm Semi-Stainless Wa-Gyuto

  • When we first designed and commissioned this line, it had been something we had been thinking about for a while.  We had an idea... medium weight, thin behind the edge, nice distal taper, hand-forged, etc.  After some testing, we finally got something we were happy with.  These knives are a bit more sturdy than some of the super thin knives we sell.  However, they are still very thin behind the edge, not unlike our Kochi series.  The cladding is stainless, to help protect the knife from rust and corrosion and make care and maintenance easier.  The core steel is a semi-stainless steel.  While it will patina over time, it is much less prone to rust and reactivity when compared to carbon steels.  However, it is very easy to sharpen, takes a great edge, has good toughness and durability, and excellent edge retention.

    These knives come with burnt chestnut octagonal handles because they are some of my favorites... denser than ho wood, a bit heavier, and they retain amazing grip when wet.  I also happen to like the way they look.  They do not come with a saya.

    These knives are exclusive to JKI and a collaboration between us and one of the very talented craftsmen we work with.
