The most versatile and essential of all knives a cook can have is a Japanese chefs knife known as a Gyuto knife. Preparing delicious meals starts with taking wholesome ingredients and using the best tools such as a high quality chefs knife to make every meal into something special. From dicing, slicing, and chopping fresh produce from a farmers market to carving a roast chicken straight from the oven, even the simplest tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional.
Our Yoshihiro Ice Hardened Stainless Steel Wa Gyuto Chef Knife is forged with a Western style curved blade that smoothly rocks back and forth with an extended tip for quick chopping.
Our Wa Gyuto is forged from a single piece of ice hardened Aus-8 stainless steel. Ice Hardening is a process where steel is quenched in temperatures below sub zero that helps draw out the hardness of refined steel while infusing it with enough resiliency to perform consistently in the most exacting of conditions. This knife is complimented with a traditional Japanese style handcrafted octagonal natural Shitan Rosewood handle affixed with a double bolster. A protective Lacquered wooden sheath called a Nuri Saya is included, which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use.
