Sukenari HAP-40 Series Wa Gyuto (210mm to 270mm, 3 sizes)

Availability: Normally ships within 1 to 6 days


 Hitachi HAP-40 is currently one of the most mysterious and attractive steels produced in Japan. This hi-tech powdered metal steel alloy has a very rich chemical position and, when it is forged and heat-treated properly, we believe that it probably offers better cutting performance and edge retention than any other high-quality Japanese steel.

 Sukenari’s knowledge of traditional forging processes and their extensive experience with modern, high performance, steels proved to be invaluable while perfecting these new HAP-40 knives. Master Hanaki, Sukenari’s innovative and energetic knife maker and Master forge-smith, has successfully managed to extract the best cutting performance and edge retention from these HAP-40 knives (HRc. 68). They are perfect for customers who love testing exotic hi-tech steels, or those who appreciate knives with outstanding cutting performance and edge retention.

 Master Hanaki believes that these new HAP-40 knives offer very competitive cutting performance and edge retention relative to his ZDP-189 and Aogami Super knives. In addition, HAP-40 offers better toughness than ZDP-189, - even when it is heat-treated to a higher Rockwell hardness. Consequently, Master Hanaki has confidence that the new Sukenari HAP-40 knives will prove to be some of the best performing and most practical knives that Sukenari offer.

 Sukenari HAP-40 knives are fitted with a comfortable octagonal magnolia wood handle, which is fitted with a buffalo horn ferrule. A Magnolia wood Saya (Sheath) is also included with the knife for safekeeping

 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. Compared to a Western-style handle, the lightweight traditional Japanese handle of the Wa Gyuto knife moves the balance point of the knife further towards the tip, which makes it feel more nimble and precise.

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 the fine craftsmanship and its sharp edge of your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for a long time.

Important

This is the Powdered High Speed Tool Steel blade kitchen knife that has a rust resistance for easy maintenance. However, it may get rust, if kept in wet condition.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.
  • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet condition for a long time.
  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes, and keep it in a 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.

Very happy with the purchase

Very good shopping experience!!! Will definitely by from japanesechefsknife.com again. Knowing this steel could be hardened by Sukenari’s to HRc. 68, I had to get one and try it out. I am SG2 user. By using it for couple weeks, I think this knife hold its edge better than SG2, but I could feel it is more brittle. I only wish this knife could be made thicker so I would be more comfortable using it to cut harder vegetable like lotus roots and carrots. I know we should probably not use this knife for that purpose, but if you were to do some heavy lifting cooking at home, versatility is very important. Right now, when cutting harder ingrediencies, I just switch to a different knife. This knife is to precious to be chipped for me. I am very happy with this knife. Very sharp out of the box, good handling. I sometimes leave the knife with water not cleaned for hours, never rust. Most importantly, it looks good with its beautiful mirror-like finish. I have not gotten to the point where I need to sharpen it yet, so can't comment on how easy to sharpen. I would honestly pay more than $500 for this knife. For $305, this was a steal. You should try it yourself.
