  1. Tojiro DP VG10 Gyuto (5 sizes)

    Tojiro DP VG10 Gyuto (5 sizes)
  2. JKC 63 Layer Gyuto (Available in 4 Sizes)

    This slimmer blade is called Gyuto – meaning cow sword. It is designed to make light work of slicing, dicing and filleting raw meat and fish. It is the Japanese adaptation of the classic French cooks' knife. This familiar looking blade represents optimal versatility as it tapers from broad base to narrow point allowing efficient contact cutting, slicing and occasional carving. The Gyuto is narrower making able to cope with fatty, starchy, oily or any other foods that have a tendency to stick to the side of the blade. If you require the knife to cut more raw / cooked flesh (meat or fish) than vegetables and want to double it up for occasional carving or only use/prefer a classic western style shape, then the Gyuto is ideal. These stunningly beautiful, scalpel sharp stainless 63 layer Damascus blades have exceptionally keen enduring edges whilst being easy to resharpen. The central core of the 63-layer JKC Damascus Collection steel is a High Carbon Chrome Vanadium (HCCV) Stainless Steel. HCCV is a recent addition to the selection of Super Steels used by Japan’s most revered smiths in the manufacture of outstanding culinary knives. JKC 63 Layer Damascus Collection blades are hardened to 58:60 HRC providing very enduring edges, which are incredibly easy to resharpen. The 63 layers imbue the blade with a truly eye-catching wood like rippled pattern; this intricate complex process not only creates an aesthetically delightful effect. More importantly, layering adds immense strength thus facilitating a thinner, yet stronger, and therefore sharper blade. The handles are composed of Ebony black Pakkawood; a laminated hard wood which is silicon injected for optimum longevity and hygiene. Pakkawood is reserved for the finest knives. The handles are secured to the tang by three steel rivets. Traditional handles have seen resurgence amongst professional chefs who find them supremely ergonomic and durable.

  6. Nesmuk Exclusive Juma Black Gyuto 180mm

    The art of forging in perfection

    The long quest for the perfect knife

    It is way more than just a commodity for everyday use: The Nesmuk EXCLUSIVE bears the heritage of thousands of years and gives its user a wholly different individual power. Being the forefather of the knife, the biface is among the oldest tools in almost all human societies and is seen as the symbol for the rise of mankind in evolutionary terms. It is a truly archaic object that, refined into the knife, has served as an indispensable tool up to the present. Only the fascination of the primordial has vanished in the course of industrialisation and mass production.

    The knife manufacturer Nesmuk has set itself the task of reviving old values with traditional craftsmanship and, at the same time, to meet the highest demands regarding sharpness, blade geometry and aesthetics. As a result, the Nesmuk EXCLUSIVE is an unparalleled chef’s and kitchen knife of superlative style and quality. Like all Nesmuk knives, it is based on the basic form of a 3,500 year old knife type. Drawing on many years of studies and comparative analytical tests, highly skilled precision craftsmanship and the uncompromised aim to reach the optimum in sum, Nesmuk has fully perfected the knife. About four dozen individual steps are required for the production of the Nesmuk EXCLUSIVE in a process that involves passion and ideals: from forge welding and forging, tempering and annealing, to the wet grinding of the double-sided hollow ground blade and the mounting of the handle. Heated up in glowing fire at a temperature of more than 1,000 degrees, the red glowing blade blank is forged on the anvil, formed by targeted, elemental hammer blows. From Damascus steel and a cutting edge in finest black carbon steel, which can be seen under the wild Damascus pattern, a fine blade is crafted with outstanding hardness of 64 – 65 Rockwell (HRC) and long-term edge retention. For numerous well-known top chefs as well as connoisseurs of the particular and authentic, the Nesmuk EXCLUSIVE is the first choice in knives. Each Nesmuk EXCLUSIVE knife with cutting edge is shipped in a luxurious piano lacquer box and with a high-quality leather sheath.

    Juma Ivory wooden handle Layers: 1400 Layers

  7. Aka R2 Gyuto (2 Sizes)

    Aka Series R2 Powder Steel Gyuto
  8. Gold Kitano 180mm Gyuto

    The Japanese adaptation of the classic French chef's knife. This slimmer (than its Santoku brother) blade is called Gyuto – meaning cow sword and is designed to make light work of slicing, dicing and filleting raw meat and fish. The more curved edge profile facilitates easier rolling action than most Santoku’s when cutting vegetables – with the revolutionary design of the Santoku in this collection this may no longer be an issue. The major difference in this collection between the two shapes is the width of the blade. The Gyuto is overall narrower and so is able to cope with fatty, starchy, oily or any other food that have a tendency to stick to the side of the blade better than the wider Santoku. The reduced surface area means there is less space for these types of foods to stick to. If you require the knife to cut more raw / cooked flesh (meat or fish) than vegetables and want to double it up for occasional carving or only use / prefer a classic western style shape, then the Gyuto is more suitable than a Santoku.

    SPECIAL NOTES: Not to be used on bone or for ANY kind of twisting or prising. CUT ONLY on wood or HDP. Do not allow Knives to be abused as screwdrivers, tin openers etc. Designed specifically for food preparation, FOR CULINARY USE ONLY.
