Description: Forge to Table was started by chef Noah Rosen. Their knives are hand forged by a 3rd generation blacksmith in China. The steels used in the blades are made by Takefu Special Steel in Japan. Forge to Table knives bring an affordable, yet quality option to the world of culinary knives.
The gyuto is modeled after the French pattern chef's knife. Longer and slimmer than the santoku, it is a great general purpose chef's knife. The long blade is needed for the sawing motion required to cut meats. The curved blade edge is perfect for a rocking chop. The slim profile keeps the weight low and the balance just right.
Forge to Table blades are hand forged from premium Japanese VG10 san mai stainless steel with a kurouchi (blacksmith's) finish. VG10 takes and holds a razor sharp edge -- ensuring a smooth and effortless cut. This gives the blade an exceedingly tough, long lasting and chip resist edge that is relatively easy to sharpen. A hollow grind provides thin geometry and an easy to touch up cutting edge. The blacksmith's kurouchi finish helps food release from the side of the blade.
The Japanese style octagonal handle is made from African padauk (Pterocarpus soyauxii) with a buffalo horn ferrule. It is comfortable for both right and left handed users. Padauk wood will hold up extremely well in the harsh environment of either a professional or home kitchen. Like other kitchen knives, this knife should not be put in a dishwasher.
The knife is shipped in a wood display box featuring Forge to Table's logo.
