Hitachi Blue #1 core and soft iron cladding. One of the best Japanese cutlery steels forged by Yoshikazu Tanaka of Sakai City. Undoubtedly one of the most revered blacksmiths, Tanaka-san's mastery of heat treating steel is loved by many users around the globe. 

The sharpener for this blade is none other than Shotaro Nomura. Currently in his 80s, Nomura-san's work for both single and double bevelled blades represents the pinnacle of kitchen knife craftsmanship in Sakai.

Nomura-san bestowed this Gyuto with a shinogi which aids in separating ingredients and providing food release. In addition, the presence of the shinogi allows future "thinning" or sharpening of the primary bevels to be conducted with ease. That said, we feel that this Gyuto will be able to see a great amount of use before it should be "thinned" as it is already very very thin behind the edge. To minimise resistance when cutting, Nomura-san has slightly blended the shinogi into the blade.

A Gyuto by two masters of their craft, in a practical size with a fine pointy tip. Tanaka-san's Blue #1 takes an absolutely incredible edge with great tactile feedback on whetstones.

Amazing

This is THE midweight gyuto unicorn. Possibly Tanaka San's best work ever. My words can't do this knife justice. You have to use it to understand. If you are a fan of yoshikazu Tanaka, and blue #1 steel, you have to own this knife.
