The Japanese adaptation of the classic French chef's knife. This slimmer blade is called Gyuto – meaning cow sword and is designed to make light work of slicing, dicing and filleting raw meat and fish. 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.
Stunningly beautiful, scalpel sharp and easy to resharpen, these knives are stainless and very easy to maintain.
The 35 layers not only make these blades aesthetically appealing but add immense strength thus facilitating a thinner, yet stronger, and therefore sharper blade.
The central core of the 35 layer JKC Tamahagane Damascus steel is a High Carbon Super Steel known as VG10. This High Carbon Super Steel has the highest recommendations in the production of knives by authorities such as the British Steel Confederation and the Solingen Institute of Steel. The JKC 35 Layer Tamahagane Collection blades have all been hardened to an outstanding 60:62 HRC and with the inclusion of Cobalt in the alloy are easier to maintain than most Stainless High Carbon or other VG10 blades.
The ergonomic traditional handles are composed of Ebony black Pakkawood, a laminated hard wood with silicon injection, which is reserved for only the finest knives and secured to the tang by three steel rivets for ultimate durability.
