    Aoki 195 mm Aogami 2 Warikomi Wa Gyuto

    Today I want to present my Aoki Wa Gyuoto, which is in fact my first and so far my only japanese kitchen knife. The knife is from the Aoki Hamono Forge in Sakai/Japan.

    Facts:
    Blade lenght: 195 mm
    Coresteel: Aogami 2
    Thickness: 3 mm at the heel, 1 mm towards the tip
    Handle: Rokaku-Hanmaru (top: hexagonal / bottom: semi-circular)
    Weight: 140 g
    Mine and Ago are rounded and mirrorpolished



    I have the knife about 1.5 years now and I absolutely love it. The craftmanship is amazing and as soon as you put in in your hands, you now it belongs there.

    The edge is very keen and easy to resharpen. For this job I use the Chosera line up to 5k and finally 5 strokes on chromium oxide on leather.

    I hope you enjoyed the read.

    Thickness measurement toward the tip is kinda vague. Did you use a ruler? Where did you get it? How hard is the hagane?

    I measured with a Vernier caliper awhile back. You can buy Aoki knives from www.japan-messer-shop.de
    The core is stated as 63-65 HRC.
