Description: The Japanese gyuto is modeled after the French pattern chef's knife. Longer and slimmer than the santoku, it is a perfect general purpose chef's knife. The long blade is needed for the slicing motion required to cut meats and the tall profile provides plenty of finger clearance while chopping over a cutting board. The gyuto is a perfect general purpose chef's knife to grab whether slicing onions, chopping parsley, or dicing meats.
Ohishi's Aogami Tsuchime knives feature a premium Super Blue (aogami super) carbon steel core. This is surrounded by protective SUS410 stainless steel. There is probably no finer combination of durability and "sharpenability" than Aogami Super steel. The fine grain particulates in this steel allow a beautifully keen edge, which will then be extremely durable. The combination of a high performance carbon steel core and stainless sides also provides easier care. It is hardened to Hrc 64 for superior edge retention. This gives the blade an exceedingly tough, long lasting and chip resistant edge that is relatively easy to sharpen. While it is much easier to care for this knife than a full carbon steel knife, it still must be hand washed and dried to avoid rusting the core. We recommend using camellia oil to avoid rust. A hammer finished surface helps stop foods from sticking to the side of the knife. The blade is exceptionally thin and cuts with virtually no resistance. The ambidextrous blade features a 50/50 grind.
Handle scales are made from thin layers of laminated wood impregnated with resin -- and easily meets the rigorous demands of a home or commercial kitchen. A triple riveted full tang runs the full length of the handle for strength and longevity. Stainless steel bolsters separate the handle and blade and stop food particles from getting between the handle and tang.
Aogami Tsuchime knives by Ohishi are sure to be a favorite in your kitchen.
