Moriya Munemitsu YHC is a subsidiary of Hitachi Materials Magic, which puts them in very fine company indeed. One fellow subsidiary is Yasugi Specialty Steels ('YSS'), producers of the cutlery-grade stainless from which this gyuto knife is produced.

Gingami#3 is a high-grade steel with high rust resistance and carbon-like hardness and edge-holding. Manufacture of this knife is highly automated and while that may not be as romantic as some of this company's sought-after wa-bocho, standards and quality control are industry-leading. Heat treatment is exacting. 

The full-tang blade with integrated steel bolster is attached to the sculpted goban handle with three rivets, designed to retain its beauty and integrity for many years. Goban is the Japanese term for a wood fibre and resin product that's very durable and feels great in the hand, offering reassuring grip as well as aesthetic appeal. Fit and finish are top-notch. A practical choice for the busy meat-lover's home kitchen.

Product Reviews

  1. Gyuto 180mm Gingami #3 Stainless Steel

    Posted by Jean Lion on 16th Apr 2019

    My husband received a knife similar to this one as a gift during a business trip to Japan in the 1980's and it was accidentally damaged last fall. Michael Shaw with Knife Japan recommended the Gyuto 180mm as being the closest match to replace the original knife. Delivery was fast and the knife was very sharp and comfortable to hold. I emailed Michael a photo of the old and new knife together and he offered to try to repair the old knife. We decided to try this for a nominal charge. It came back with a beautiful mirror edge and is very sharp. Michael was a pleasure to work with and now we have two beautiful knives that we use daily. Customer service was excellent and I would definitely order from Knife Japan again!
