Add-on Options:

Our Yoshihiro High Speed Steel Wa Gyuto is a state of the art Handcrafted Japanese Chefs knife. It beautifully brings together incredible sharpness, long lasting edge retention, stain resistance, and an ease of sharpening that outclasses many other knives currently on the market. The outstanding performance of the knife is the result of combing state of the art metallurgy with the bountiful knowledge and skill of the master craftsmen.


High Speed Steel is currently considered to be the most advanced stainless steel on the market for high end kitchen knives. A particular significance is the high amount of Cobalt (8%) in the steel alloy which give it its high wear resistance and durability. It makes it perfect for use in its original purpose of industrial machinery, but also excellent in high end kitchen knives which require long lasting edge retention.

It is not easy to forge kitchen knives with High Speed Steel and there are not many knife manufacturers that make the attempt. However, the end results are overwhelmingly positive if done successfully. A particular importance is during heat treatment when the steel reaches in excess of 1200 degrees Celsius. This temperature is extremely high even within forging handcrafted Japanese knives and combined with the state of the art steel, it is what makes the Yoshihiro High Speed Steel Wa Gyuto its exceptional features.

The High Speed Steel core is clad in full stainless steel for added protection and durability and comes with a handcrafted magnolia wood cover for easy storage. A simple but elegant handcrafted Rosewood handle compliments the blade and provides for a light and balanced construction.
