Nakagawa Satoshi Blue #1 Damascus Gyuto 210mm Ebony with Silver Spacer Handle


Nakagawa Satoshi is a renowned smith hailing from Sakai-city, who apprenticed under master smith Kenichi Shiraki before taking over the master’s forge upon his retirement a few years ago. Satoshi borrowed from his mentor’s knowledge of stainless steel forging and adapted it to create exquisite blades from Blue #1 carbon steel. 

The sharpener for this Nakagawa Satoshi blade is Myojin Naohito, who has already amassed over a decade of sharpening experience at the young age of 31. Known for his sharpening work on the iconic Fujiyama line by Konosuke, the precision and refinement of his hamaguri (convex) style sharpening offers supreme smoothness when cutting, on top of an aesthetically stunning finish. 

Nakagawa’s hand forged Blue #1 carbon steel sports a high hardness point and maintains a sharp edge exceptionally well. The expertly sharpened edge with its hamaguri (convex) grind will breeze through dense ingredients and make for a rewarding sharpening project. Cooks looking to invest in a unique carbon steel blade boasting aesthetics, performance and ease of sharpening will delight in owning a Nakagawa Satoshi original. It is important to note that these must be used with a gentle hand, as the edge is quite thin and can chip if not used with care.

A chef's knife ('Gyuto' in Japanese) is the most versatile blade that can handle almost anything in the kitchen. Their shape and often generous edge length mean that whether it's cutting small tomatoes or portioning a large roast, you can do it with one blade. Most cooks have multiple chef's knives and it is not hard to justify getting one more when it has so much utility.
