Description: Gyuto hocho are modeled after the French pattern chef's knife. Longer and slimmer than the santoku, this knife is well suited for chopping and slicing fruits, vegetables and meats. The long blade is needed for the sawing motion required to cut meats and the slim profile keeps the weight low and the balance right.
The hammer-finished, damascus blades of these Ohishi knives are designed for the chef who needs a high-performing tool and appreciates a thing of beauty.
The ambidextrous blade is formed from a central layer of VG10 super-steel, surrounded by 15 layers of softer stainless damascus. The VG10 stainless steel is hardened to Hrc 60-61 ensuring that the blade will take and hold an extremely sharp edge.
The unique tsuchime, or hammer finish, enhances both the look and performance of the knife. Each of the hammer blows produce an effect similar to that of a granton edge - allowing the knife to move more cleanly and efficiently through the food and assisting the food to fall away from the side of the knife rather than sticking.
A mahogany-toned pakkawood handle completes the piece. Pakkawood provides strength and stability along with moisture resistance -- a valuable set of virtues in both home and commercial kitchens.
