The Granton range from Brieto is slightly different to the rest of the knives they have to offer. The Molybdenum Vanadium steel core is blasted with a special heat treatment with water quenching at the temperature of 1050°C. It then undergoes a cooling process which takes the temperature under -73°C to provide rigidity and durability to enhance the sharpness. The indentations made onto this knife reduce the surface area of the blade when it comes into contact with food which allows it to separate with ease.GYUTO (Gyu – cow & To – sword): This is the Japanese interpretation of a Western Chef’s knife. It is flat from the handle end for about 1/3rd of the edge and then curves to the tip. It is ideal for the Western style of roll cutting. Function – Multipurpose chef knife. For Slicing, Dicing, Mincing, Filleting and Chopping of meat, fish and vegetables. Normal length – 180mm to 300mm. Tip: With the edge flat for about 1/3rd of the blade – 210 mm or longer the knife-edge profile is the same as a 180mm Santoku from the handle to tip and the same as a 180mm Gyuto from the tip to handle – so essentially a 180mm Gyuto & 180mm Santoku in one knife. The 210mm is the most favoured size for most chefs.
All knives come with one free sharpening. Avoid using on frozen foods and on bones.
