Takamura VG-10 Gyuto 180mm



Takamura is a small hamono located in the heart of Takefu, Fukui Japan.  Run by third generation blacksmith Terukazu Takamura  who inherited the business from his father Toshiyuki Takamura.  VG-10 is a great steel.  Utilizing a higher carbon content (1%) allows this steel to retain a longer edge while keeping stainless due to the 15% of Chromium.  VG-10 steel is a workhorse style steel.  Not prone to chipping and easy to sharpen, this is the steel choice for many chefs and professional cooks.

The 180mm Takamura VG-10 gyuto is well balanced and is an excellent all around blade for a majority of tasks.

Oh.... our go to fav gyuto - thanks Takamura - san.
