Gyuto is the Japanese equivalent to the western chef’s knife, and the Kikuichi S33 Damascus Gyuto Knife is an all-purpose knife designed in this style. The blade is thinner and narrower than a standard chef’s knife. It is suitable for use with meat, fish, and vegetables. The kiritsuke tip allows this knife to handle detail work as well.
Kikuichi bladesmithing began in the 13th century, creating Samurai swords for the Japanese emperor. Kikuichi has been making kitchen cutlery for 150 years, with the royal symbol of the chrysanthemum on all blades. This high performance Damascus-clad blade is made from a VG10 steel core with 33 layers of steel on each side. The blade is sharpened to 60 Rockwell hardness for exceptional edge retention, and hand engraved with the Kikuichi chrysanthemum logo. The black stabilized wood handle is triple-riveted.
Hand wash and dry immediately. Made in Japan.
