Made in Japan, Tojiro Fujitora 3-Layer is the new DP series known as one of the best and affordable knife collection on the market. With a solid full-tang construction and low maintenance blade made from a highly reputable VG-10 core and a 13-chrome cladding, it can not only hold a sharp edge thanks to its high carbon content, but is also resistant to rust. The 18-8 stainless bolster with reinforced laminated handle offers comfortable and a well-balanced feeling in the hand. It simply doesn't get any better than that!
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.
