  • This Zakuri 240mm Aogami Super Kurouchi Gyuto is a truly unique knife. The handles are larger than handles I have seen on other gyutos, though not prohibitively large so as to be uncomfortable for smaller hands (as long as a pinch grip is used). What does this mean? Well, better balance for one. Not necessarily weight balance, though it does help a little, but more bulk balance. The handle matches the blade, so to speak. The blade is a more robust shape. This is a knife just begging to get some serious use. The Aogami Super edge takes a very sharp edge and holds it for quite some time. Aogami Super is, in my opinion, the best balance of sharpness and edge holding in a high carbon steel today. This knife is not stainless will patina with use. If not cared for properly, it may rust. The kurouchi finish on this blade, however, partially protects the sides of the blade from rust.
