If you have ever stumbled across a bang for your buck knife, this it.
The perfect balance of utility and stunning looks.
What can it be utilised for:
The Gyuto or commonly referred to as a Chef's knife is the all-rounder of the knife world. Being able to take care of general duties is the knife's strong points, and it can take care of tasks such as: slicing and dicing meat cuts, chopping vegetables, transferring chopped items. Then the medium sized petty or pairing knife is great for vegetable prep and when you simply don't need the larger 210mm chef's knife.
Besides you looking amazing with your new knife, the large blade of this gyuto allows you to do everything from chopping potatoes to slicing large steaks. Whilst we would all like to have ten plus knives, having a pair like the gyuto and petty knives will get you out of trouble.
Why a Japanese knife:
Japanese craftsmen have been making steel based blades for centuries and this artesian skill has built them an undeniable reputation for making some of the best knives available. In addition, the lighter construction compared to a traditional Western-style knife allows for less fatigue when slicing up a metric tonne of onions!
A true Japanese made and crafted knife.
History and info
3 layers Damascus stainless steel
So-called Damascus steel is multi-layered of microthin stainless steel. 25% of components at the center of layers are called a core steel. Damascus steel used for this CLAD series has AUS-10 stainless steel as a core steel. The other 75% of components are two different hardness steel layers. The both sides of core steel are compressed with alternately soft steel and hard steel. This makes the blade look like wave patterns by special procedures.
AUS-10 stainless steel for core
An extremely adaptable stainless steel. AUS10 sits underneath VG10 in terms of hardness, and is fairly easy to sharpen, low maintenance and less prone to chipping than harder steel knives.
The HRC is a hardness scale based on the hardness of a material. Typically HRC of 60+ is seen to be a quality hard steel that retains its edge over a prolonged time.
