Goko Hamono Mandai Kogetsu Gyuto knife Korikin steel 210 mm (8.3") Rosewood handle
This hand-forged Mandai Kogetsu Gyuto knife was made by Goko Hamono (Yoshito Yamakawa) from Kashiwa City in Chiba Prefecture. 210mm long blade made from Korikin stainless steel (Korikin is proprietary stainless steel and heat-treat protocol developed by Goko Hamono), heat-treated up to 59-60HRC. Round shape handles made from natural Rosewood.
My son received the knife as a birthday present. He absolutely loved it. I might have to plan another knife surprise for him. Also, the delivery to Germany was lightning fast. Order to delivery in Germany took only 4 days.
It's ideal for cooking at home. The handle and blade have a great look. Right out of the box, the knife was razor sharp. This knife is something I would suggest since it has altered the way I cook.
