The Ryuga series from Sakon brand was developed by Hokiyama Cutlery to respond to the growing demand for knives made with high speed powdered steel. After years of research and development, they finally released Ryuga. Hokiyama uses the highest quality of high speed powdered steel, which is clad between layers of soft steel.
Despite its simple look, the Ryuga line is a top quality line of knives that can be used for any purpose. While the spine is rather thick, the edge of the blade is made thin, so this knife is suitable for both rough and fine knife cuts, and has excellent edge retention.
The gyuto is the Japanese version of the classic Western chef's knife but the blade is thinner and holds a sharper edge. Use it for chopping, mincing and slicing meat, fish, vegetables and fruit.
