Kanetaka Sanmai Ivory Gyuto 240mm

Kanetaka is a more than 200-year-old forge and shop in Kyoto. In 2023 I had the honor of visiting this forge and meeting Yoshitaka Yamada. He is the 7th generation blacksmith of the family, his older brother Kazuhiro Yamada sharpens the knives. The knives from Yoshitaka Yamada are absolutely unique, the knives are much thicker and heavier than most Japanese knives and therefore the knives are very suitable for the preparation of demanding vegetables and meat/fish.

This sturdy Japanese chef's knife has a sanmai forged core of Japanese Aogami paper (non-stainless) carbon steel. This double-sided sharpened knife is completely hand-forged by the master blacksmith of Yoshitaka Yamada of Kanetaka Hamono. The blade is thick and heavy and has no thickenings, making sharpening very easy. A Gyuto (literally "cow knife") is a universal knife that can be used for meat, fish and vegetables.

  • Blade length: 210 mm
  • Total length: 390 mm
  • Weight: 312 grams
  • Blade thickness: 3.5 mm
  • Steel type: core steel: Japanese Aogami (non-stainless) steel with 2 softer layers of steel for the outside
  • Hardness: 62-63 (Rockwell C)
  • Handle: Traditional octagonal handle of blue burlwood with Ivory Corian (artificial ivory) and spacers of Nickel Silver (Alpaca)

Like all Japanese knives, Kanetaka's handmade knives are not dishwasher safe, cleaning and drying after each use is the best treatment for these exclusive products.
