Tsukiji Masamoto Carbon Steel Gyuto 210mm (8.2") with Wa-handle

81504

This knife, which combines a traditional Japanese high-carbon blade with a Western style double-bevel edge, is a great choice for cooks who are more comfortable using Western-style blades but want the unparalleled sharpness and durability found in Japanese-style knives. While this blade is Western style, the handle is Japanese style octagonal.
The high carbon substances martensite and carbide combined together allows the blade to be heat treated to a higher quality. Carbide increases wear-resistance and edge retention while still giving the blade some flexibility.
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.
