Korin Masanobu VG-10 Gyutou

One Keen Cut

Korin Masanobu VG-10 Gyutou

Fuse the Old and New World together with the Masanobu Gyoutu 7" knife from Korin. Combining traditional Japanese knife craftsmanship with modernized computerized lasers, the company produces a stain-resistant, VG-10 cobalt steel blade, which is said to retain an excellent level of sharpness even over time. When we first tried the knife, sharpness is precisely what we discovered: its double-edged blade was a pleasure to use, and its octagonal-shaped wood handle was also a plus, providing a great grip that made it feel secure to hold. This all-purpose knife, which also comes in four larger sizes, is described as being ideal for cutting meat, fish and vegetables. Our only issue was a few rust spots that appeared after only about one month of usage, but this is also something that Korin warns will happen if it is not washed and dried immediately after use. If you're going to spend this much on a knife, make sure to take good care of it, and it will last a lifetime.
