Blade & Handle
This is a hand hammered 45 layer Damascus knife with a Swedish Special Steel core and octagonal handle.
This knife has a light weight because it is the sharpness of the blade that will slice through effortlessly.
Since it has a 50/50 bevel angle ratio, it can be used by both right-handed and left-handed chefs. With an HRC of 60, it has impressive edge retention but it is also surprisingly easy to sharpen.
This knife is not only aesthetically pleasing but a pleasure to use as well.
The gyuto is the Japanese version of the classic Western chef's knife but the blade is thinner and holds a sharper edge. Use it for chopping, mincing and slicing meat, fish, vegetables and fruit.
