This Aogami Super Gyutou is a new item from renowned craftsman Takayuki Shibata. Forged out of Aogami Super blue steel, which is known for its excellent edge retention and ability to get incredibly sharp, each knife is hand sharpened by Shibata-san. The fit and finish on the knife is of the same high caliber as the SG2 Kotetsu knives and these knives are stainless clad with textured sides to allow for better food release. The Kotetsu line takes its name from Japan's first iron-clad ship.
Currently, the Aogami Super is only available in this 240mm Gyutou size.
