Masakage Yuki Gyuto, 24cm
This Japanese chef's knife has a core of non-rust resistant Japanese Shirogami #2 "White" carbon steel.

This knife is completely hand-forged by master smith Hiroshi Kato and is unique in its kind. The blade is very thin and manually sharpened and has no thickenings which makes sharpening very easy.
