Comment: I am a sharpness freak and I already owned the Masahiro 8 inch Gyuto in the special Hitachi MV stainless steel, which is probably the best high carbon stainless steel, slightly better hardness and edge than my Wusthoff and Messermeister chef knives - all are good. However this high carbon Gyuto is even better at producing a really sharp edge that lasts and lasts. Use the Masahiro water stones to sharpen it - a match made in knife heaven.
Comment: This is the first non-european style knife I've owned and it has been a lovely transition. The blade is light and altogether comfortable in my hand. Maintenance is well worth the sharpness and endurance of the blade.
Comment: comfortable and sharp
Comment: Beautiful knife...have been using mine professionally for over 10 yrs now. Makes me sad that I couldn't get the same wooden handle as my original (this was a gift)
Comment: Very good knife for the price, I have had a Masahiro 210 MV series Gyutou for a few years now and decided to get this for my girlfriend (of course I get to "test it out" on almost a daily basis haha), and she loves it. Very good, rounded knife with great balance. Highly recommended.
Comment: I spend many hours a week with a knife in hand. I could not be happier with the Masahiro. It takes a razor edge that is unattainable with stainless, and holds it through a week or more of rigorous use. Carbon blades do require more care than a stainless blade, however any true professional should be more than willing to invest the effort in a superior tool. I own several dozen "professional" knives, yet this one is married to my hand. Knife Merchant provided me with an excellent knife, at a remarkable price, and with uncommon customer service. I have, and will continue to recommend this product from this vendor to any chef who cares enough to seek out the very best.
Comment: This purchase was for a wedding present. I bought this knife because I have 3 of the Masahiro knives and absolutely love them. Once I submitted the purchase I called the Knife merchant and explained that I needed it withing a few days. I live in San Diego and the gentlemen assured me he would ship it that day. I got it the next day. Kudos to Knife Merchant. Highly recommend!
Comment: very nice knife.
