About the shape - Inspired by the profile of a traditional European chef knife, gyutos are a multi purpose knife with a slight meat cutting bias and “gyuto” even translates to “cow sword”. If you want one knife to do it all, This is it. The longer blade typically gives the blade a forward balance that allows it to work for you. While the blade would ideally by slid forward or back while cutting, they are also great for folks that prefer to 'rock' their knife while cutting.
The 180mm Gyuto is great for those who prefer a smaller knife.
About Masakage Kumo - Sexy or what? Dubbed Kumo (cloud), these dreamy looking blades could be compared to watching the clouds on the coolest of days. The blades are hand-forged with VG-10 stainless steel wrapped with alternating damascus layers of stainless steel and nickel, teamed up with an octagon cherry wood and pakka handle. They have a nice light feel and forward balance. Heavenly!
VG-10 is a steel that brings sharpness, toughness and stain resistance together in the best combination possible. That and it’s stainless so you never see your food discolour or pick up a rusty knife.

Review by Rodolfo R. on 4 Sep 2017review stating Great knife!
I pulled the trigger on this awesome knife and couldn't be happier with the quality and performance, plus it's gorgeous! It replaced my 240mm Mcusta Zanmai Damascus Flame Gyuto, which I very much liked as well. The Masekage is thicker and a beast of a knife next to the Mcusta but just as sharp if not more. Overall the knife feels light for it's size and is very comfortable to work with, it holds an edge for what seems to be forever. I have owned the knife for over a year now and it performs just as well as it did the first day with minimal sharpening. Very happy with my purchase, highly recommended.
