Jonathan Brazier - Syosaku Brand Ambassador

"Love using this Gyuto from Syosaku-Japan. With an easy to maintain 180mm Molybdenum-Vanadium stainless steel blade and the well balanced feel it has in the hand whilst using it, makes it a go to knife for a lot of my cooking.

The knife feels very well balanced in the hand and is a pleasure to use. It makes chopping and slicing things (not fingers 😊) very easy. Straight out of the box it is amazingly sharp as always with Syosaku knives."

    Jonathan Brazier
    Straight out of the box they are both amazingly sharp as always with Syosaku knives.

    Both are Gyuto knives with super sharp stainless steel blades. One has a 220mm premium Molybdenum stainless steel blade and the other has a 180mm Molybdenum-Vanadium
    stainless steel blade.

    Straight out of the box they are both amazingly sharp as always with Syosaku knives. Both knives feel very well balanced in the hand and are a pleasure to use. They both make chopping and slicing things (not fingers 😊) very easy.

    It was a gift.

    It was a gift to my daughter. She and her husband enjoy cooking together. And they only want dishwasher tolerant kitchen utensils. So I had this impressive knife sent to them to use. And they absolutely love it. They said it is by far the sharpest knife they own.

    Excellent Knife!!!

    This is a wonderful knife. Well balanced good feel and very sharp. Hopefully will sharpen as well over time. Very good value as well. I have done very expensive Japanese knives, thus one compares pretty well. Great for any kitchen and all purpose use!

    Really good knife

    As its hard to find a knife fit for your daily use , this knifes gives it beat, easy to sharp and maintain, i a using the wet stone once a fortnight and only using the sharpener every day to maintain that sharpness! I am highly recommend this knife!
