This collection is a hot roll forged from three-layer steel. With a central core of AUS 10 laminated with SUS 410, these knives are finished with a machine hammered tsuchime.
The core of AUS 10 holds a magnificent edge that is consummately easy to sharpen whilst the soft outer layers will be very simple to thin in years to come resulting in a knife that will give many years of super-sharp service. The tsuchime finish means that the blade is less prone to sticking to oily, fatty or starchy food.
Since its introduction a couple of years ago these have become one of our most popular ranges with busy chefs.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.
