Made from an all stainless San Mai (3 layered construction), comprising of a V10 core for edge retention & durability and clad on either side with a softer stainless to make for a more robust cutting tool.

The Tsuchime range are the ideal choice for those looking for the aesthetic and profile of a Japanese blade but the ease of care and handling of a stainless, western handled knife.

  In addition to providing aesthetic appeal the Tsuchime or hammered Damascus cladding also provides greatly improved food release, particularly useful when slicing vegetables.

  The Gyuto is Japan’s answer to the western chef knife, in a country where the food culture has given birth to a myriad of highly specialised knives with specific jobs, the gyuto is an all round knife to cover all the bases. It was created in the latter part of the 19C after the son of a prominent Japanese blacksmith visited the west to investigate new knife making technologies, he returned with a few samples and a load of ideas and ever since then it has evolve into the hugely popular style we recognise today.
