Wagyu is a beef cattle breed indigenous to Japan, renowned for their intense marbling and buttery texture. Full Blood Wagyu are beef cattle with 100% of their genetics traceable to their Japanese ancestry with no crossbreeding.
Most of the Wagyu steaks you can find in your local butcher or restaurants are most likely Wagyu crossbred with other breeds (e.g. Angus). Though cheaper, it would not give you the same intense marbling, sweetness and quality you can get from a Full Blood Wagyu.
At MS 4-5 marbling, it is comparable to USDA Prime and Japanese A3/A4.
If this is your first foray into Wagyu territory, this is just the steak for you!
All Wagyu cattle are grain fed which leads to its high fat content and sweet flavour profile.
Dry Aging for 35 days lends the meat to be more tender than it already is, with light woody notes of oak and shiitake.
