Made by traditional Japanese forging method, Muneishi brand Gyuto knife.

Black Gyuto knife made by Mr. Hirotaka Muneishi. He was born to a blacksmith’s family, inherited the technique and now has been certified by the Japanese government as a national traditional craftsman.

This knife is made using traditional methods that have been used since the samurai era. Formed by forging carbon steel and the blade retains the natural color that results from the forging process. It has the rustic beauty and you can feel the skill of blacksmith.

This knife is sharp and easy to sharpen with a stone. But the blade is not stainless, so easy to rust. Please wash and dry after use to avoid oxidation.

  1. Blade Aogami#2 Steel : Many Japanese forged knife craftsmen traditionally prefer Shirogami#2 steel or Aogami#2 steel. Because it is suitable for forged handmade knives. The quality of the blade varies depending on the skill of the craftsman, but in general Aogami#2 steel is a higher grade than Shirogami#2. Since it is carbon steel (not stainless steel), it easily rusts. So please wash and dry after use.
  2. Handle : Octagonal walnut wood


  • Keep clean and dry after use.
  • Do not use for any frozen foods or bones.
  • Not recommend to clean in dishwasher.

Had this knife for a few months already and it’s been performing great. Blade stays sharp for a decent while and looks gorgeous. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a Gyuto.

The knife was a gift and the recipients have told me that they are very happy to have received it. I’ll forward on the knife maintenance page to them. It was a pleasure to work with you and I will certainly look to your company the next time I wish to buy a knife.
