When we say unique, there is only 1 like this! Ideal for knife collectors and/or enthusiasts that appreciate a heavier feel in the hand, this is a one of a kind custom assembled knife by Kakushin. With a forged White #2 Carbon Steel blade from Sakai-city, Osaka, Japan also known as Shirogami, the tang was heat fitted and solidified with hot glue onto a unique epoxy with stabilized wood handle from the Netherlands resulting in this piece of art.
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. Gyuto’s 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 Gyuto’s have a reputation for being lighter and thinner.
