Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan White Steel No.2 Wa Series Hon Kasumi Wa Gyuto (210mm to 270mm, 3 sizes)

Availability: Normally ships the same day

We have been proud to work with our team of top-ranking craftsman from Sakai, Osaka, who produce our Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan series of knives.

Their work is always impressive, with fine attention to details and excellent fit and finish. 

This basic and classic Japanese Traditional Style knife is made with a core of the very popular, high purity, Hitachi White No2. Japanese high carbon steel, which is sandwiched between two layers of soft iron. The blade is carefully hand ground to create superb cutting geometry and it is beautifully hand polished. Indeed, the overall fit and finish of the knife is excellent.

This knife has a comfortable octagonal magnolia wood handle, which has a buffalo horn ferrule. For safekeeping, each knife comes with a matching magnolia wood Saya (Sheath) with a black pakkawood Saya pin.

The Gyuto is the Japanese version of the classic Western Chef’s knife. It can be used with a variety of different cutting techniques to achieve a wide range of kitchen tasks and is suitable for cutting the vast majority of meats, fish, vegetables and fruits. The Gyuto is true multi-purpose knife.

Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan White Steel No.2 Wa Series Hon Kasumi Wa Gyuto (210mm to 270mm, 3 sizes)


This knife comes with 50/50 double bevel edge geometry for both right and left handed use.

For your information, Japanese Kitchen knives are generally designed for right hand use with a slightly thicker and rounded grinding on the right side blade and a less rounded (almost straight flat) grinding on the left side blade. However, both right and left hander can use the knives that have double bevel edge sharpened  50/50 without problems.  

We believe the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and sharp edge with your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for long times. 


This is the Carbon steel blade kitchen knife that can get rust and discolor easily, and requires extra care and attention to prevent rust.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.
  • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet condition for long time.
  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes. Please apply Tsubaki oil on the blade and keep it in dry place.
  • This is an extremely sharp knife. Please use special cares in using and storing it.
  • Unlike German made knives, Japanese knife blades are ground to thin cutting edge for sharper cutting and easier re-sharpening. Please protect the edge from hitting hard materials to avoid chipping or cracking.
  • Please do not use it to cut bone or frozen foods, any hard shell foods such as lobster and crab.
  • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.

    A great first knife

    Shipping was quick and easy, it only took like a week to travel across the world. Packaging was secure and the knife was decently sharpened. it doesn’t come screaming sharp but it’s sharper than anything you’ll buy at a non-specialty store. fit and finish are awesome and i love that the whole knife is starting to patina given the iron cladding. My one regret, a petty is more my size and i did end up getting one but this gyuto is awesome for bigger undertakings. If you’re considering this as your first carbon steel knife, it’s an awesome buy

    Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan White Steel No.2 Wa Series Hon Kasumi Wa Gyuto 240mm

    This was my first expensive chef knife I have bought and I have been astounded with it's performance. Straight out of the box it was not as sharp as my old freshly sharpened knife although it was usable and the thickness of the blade made it slide though veg with ease. It didn't take long on the whetstone to get a razor sharp edge. I would recommend this knife to anyone. The Saya that came with the knife did not fit well and I have had to make adjustments to get a correct fit however.
