Description: The gyuto is modeled after the French pattern chef's knife. Longer and slimmer than the santoku, it is well suited for preparation of meat and as a general purpose chef's knife. The long blade is needed for the sawing motion required to cut meat and the slim profile keeps the weight low and the balance right.
Tojiro DP Damascus knives are designed for the chef looking for a superb tool that is also an object of subtle beauty and distinction.
The core of the forged double bevel laminated blade is made from pure stain-resistant high-carbon steel alloyed with molybdenum overlaid with 36 separate fine layers of steel, alternating between high-carbon and low-carbon stainless, giving the knife exceptional strength. These layers are then polished to create a subtle, shimmering patterning effect to the blade surface. The effect of this technique is called suminagashi in Japanese, which translates as floating mist. The result is a blade that will take and hold an extremely sharp edge, but is strengthened by the Damascus outer layer.
The handles are formed from Pakawood, laminated hardwood impregnated with resin.
