The Umi models, part of the Kurai series, add to the collection of renowned punch-color handles known for their beauty. Crafted with a Western-style epoxy handle embedded with foil crystals, they exude a distinctive shine. Complemented by the Kurouchi Damascus blade, featuring impressive edge geometry, these knives achieve a perfect harmony between aesthetics, performance, and cost.

Gyutos are known as the only knife needed in the kitchen. The blades typically range from 210mm to 270mm in length and are appreciated for their taller heel. Gyutos are a great option for most, as they have a reasonably flat profile toward the heel for chopping, a belly toward the tip of the blade for rock cutting, and a pointed tip for precision work, which is why many chefs prefer a Gyuto over many other models.

While often similar in shape when compared to Western chef knives, Japanese Gyutos have a reputation for being lighter and thinner.
