Description: Petit gyuto hocho, meaning small slicing knife, are a great general purpose utility knife for tasks around the kitchen. The slender blade makes it very useful and versatile from slicing fruit to chopping garlic.
Each knife is individually hand-forged beginning with a high carbon stainless steel core (hagane). This is surrounded by many layers of high contrast Damascus. This time consuming process creates a knife with outstanding edge holding and beauty. The blade is distal tapered for optimal balance and has an extremely thin, keen edge for high performance.
The right-handed 'D' shape handle fits comfortably and securely in the hand and is best used by a right-handed user. It is formed from ho wood, the traditional wood for Japanese handles. This wood, which is a relative of magnolia, holds up extremely well in the harsh environment of the kitchen. A dark red pakka wood ferrule adds nice contrast. Each knife is sent in a nice gift box.
Like other kitchen knives, this knife should not be put in a dishwasher.
