Blade Type

The Gyuto knife, a cornerstone of Japanese culinary tradition, is a versatile, all-purpose chef's knife. Its name, translating to "beef sword," reflects its proficiency in slicing meat and in more modern times vegetables. However, its slightly curved blade excels in chopping, dicing, and mincing, making it indispensable in any kitchen

Steel Type

Japanese Blue Steel #1, known as "Aogami" #1, is a premium high-carbon steel enriched with tungsten and chromium. It has seen a recent surge in popularity and is now used by many top-tier knife makers for its superior edge retention and durability. It also offers a unique balance of toughness and sharpness. This steel is highly valued in crafting traditional Japanese knives, especially for professional use.

Recommended Maintenance

Store it in a dry environment using magnetic strips, knife rolls, or sayas. Avoid hitting hard or frozen objects and twisting the blade while cutting. These knives are not dishwasher safe. Clean with hot water and a soft cloth, and dry immediately after use to prevent rust spots on the high carbon steel. For more information please read the blog below.



HADO Sakai are, in our opinion, among Japan's premier knife makers. Everything about their ranges is exquisite. The packaging has been custom designed in collaboration with French artist Phillipe Weisbecker, of which this packaging houses one of the finest blades we have ever seen. The Blue 1 Damascus is a special collaboration between Chefs Edge and HADO.

Knife Care

This knife is made from a high-carbon steel and as such, will require a little more care than a regular off-the-shelf knife. It must be dried shortly after use, as prolonged exposure to moisture can cause rust spots to appear. A very light coat of oil during storage also helps to prevent rust spots. A patina (colouration and seasoning of the steel) will occur with use.

Favorite knife

Of all the japanese knives I own, this tops them all. There is not a single complaint or flaw in this knife imo. At this point, it is difficult to buy any more knives cuz i fear they wont even come close to comparing. I find myself always going back to using this Hado in the kitchen and look forward to cooking again just for the reason of using it.
If there is one knife to own, this would be it for me.
