Japanese Chef Knife 9" Gyuto
When sourcing knives direct from Japan for you, we really wanted to provide a traditional and high quality blade, yet we wanted it not to be so high end or intimidating in regards to the care and maintenance of the blade that it becomes strictly an art piece that is never used.
We wanted to bring you a chef's knife that is functional, beautiful, high quality, while also being something that you can use every day without worry and is different from what you can typically find online.
Our knives are extremely unique and no two are exactly alike. Using traditional methods with some modern influences, this marriage of metals and natural materials gave birth to this one of a kind chef's knife.
The root of these blades utilize traditional Japanese steel worked by hand in the traditional way, but with an added twist. The maker incorporates a unique process and formula using a modern approach and infuses precious metals into the final blade that help it resist oxidation far greater than traditional steel.
Some of the areas are more Aogami blue in areas of flexion where other areas are of higher Shirogami in ridged sections (depending on the blade).
The infusion of precious metals carries a higher degree of seishen or spirit which is said to keep the vitality of the food better intact for your nutritional needs.
These blades need to be cared for properly, even though they perform with more integrity and versatility, then some comparable knives. Keep in mind there's a correct tool for every job. For example, never use a knife for opening a can or packaging material unless it's made for it or you're in a survival situation.
Always use-proper cutting surfaces, avoiding bones, frozen foods and hard seed pits etc.
Always hand wash and dry your knife after every use. Keep and eye on the cutting edge and make sure to maintenance, sharpen, and store it properly.
