This beautiful Gyuto knife is made by a young and talented craftsman (blacksmith) from the Saitama Prefecture, Norifumi Yoshizawa. 210mm hand-forged, three-layer (san mai) blade, made from Takefu Special Steel Company V2 carbon steel (not the same but similar to Aogami#2) as the central core, sandwiched between two layers of softer stainless steel.  Japanese traditional shape handle made from Rosewood. Yoshizawa developed his skills in the Tosa region under the patronage of the famous bladesmith Mr. Yoshihiko Akitomo (Rad Orca cutlery owner in the third generation). Tosa uchihamono (Tosa cutlery) is distinctive for free-forging in which knives shapes are formed by the precise hammering and flattening of hot metal.  All Tosa knives forging and finishing processes are made by only one man (so Tosa artisans spend many years developing their skills). Yoshizawa believes knives are valuable only when they are used as a tool for daily life. That is why he is working hard to create knives that look beautiful and have the functional beauty of practical knives that can be re-sharpened and used for an extended period. The perfect blade shape, superb balance, and Takefu V2 carbon steel guarantee excellent cutting ability and sharpness, but rust resistance is low. To prevent corrosion, please wipe the blade dry, particularly the core steel not covered by the stainless cladding after every use. Yoshizawa Gyuto knife is a perfect choice for home "Everyday" cooking and is highly recommended for professionals. Each knife is individually packed in a premium Japanese authentic gift box with traditional patterns.

"Gyuto knife is a multipurpose knife, analogous to the European Chef knife. In Japanese ""Gyuto"" means ""cow sword"", as it was originally designed for cutting large chunks of beef. But unlike the European Chef knife, the Japanese Gyuto knife is thinner and made of harder steel. Usually, Gyuto blade lengths from 180 to 300mm (most popular 180mm; 210mm, and 240mm). The handle can be as Western same as Japanese style. Gyuto is the real King of the kitchen. With this knife, you can do just about anything (meat, fish, vegetables, fruit). With Gyuto you can chop, slice, julienne, dice."

After use, wash it with a soft sponge, wipe the knife dry and store safely. Avoid cutting the bones, frozen foods, hard fruit pits.

Recommended cutting surface: wood, rubberized boards, and high-end composites, as well as quality plastics such as polyethylene, make acceptable cutting surfaces and will help protect and extend the life of the knife's edge. AVOID using glass, metal, countertops, and other rigid, unyielding surfaces.

We think that sharpening all quality Japanese knives on whetstones produces the finest results for your blades.
