The laminated blade is decorated with a Tsuchime (“Hammered pattern”) texture and a traditional Japanese Kurouchi (“Literally, “Black-forged”) finish that ads a touch of rustic style.

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.

    Takeshi Saji Aogami Super 210mm Gyuto

    I have 5 Takeshi Saji knives with Ironwood handles: Rainbow blue 240 Gyuto, Rainbow blue 180 Bunka, 180 R2 Nakiri, 220mm R2 Cleaver, and this AS 210 Gyuto. This AS 210 is my favorite one among the 5 that I owned. This knife felt more balanced and maybe a little lighter than my 180 Rainbow blue Bunka. The mammered patterns, and black KU finished looked great especially with the Ironwood color. I wished I have bought the Bunka and Nakiri in this Aogami Super series, but there is always room for 1 or 2 more. Thank you JCK for your wonderful service and top quality products.

The knife is amazing and is what is provided in the description, it is my sharpest knife out of the box!! Fit and finish amazing. Japanese Chefs Knife have fair prices and I would not hesitate buying another knife from them, I am waiting until they have the 150mm Petty in stock and will place an order. Thanks for your great service.
