The HD line from Konosuke has the same dimensions as the White #2 line, but is made from proprietary semi-stainless steel to provide that extra protection from discoloration. Care does need to be taken to prevent rusting, but these knives take on a great patina which will also help to curb discoloration. This 210mm Gyuto is hands down, the most popular knife amongst home cooks. It is the perfect size for the home kitchen or when cutting board real estate is at a premium. It is the all-around multi-tasking blade and great for so many jobs. Heat-treated to an HRC of 61, these blades are attached to an octagonal Ebony wood handle with a blonde Buffalo horn ferrule. As with all of our Konosuke knives, this comes with the option of a Saya.
You can not buy a better knife for this price Period! I personally prefer the hand forged white steel,but they are heavier & need more care. This HD knife is almost carefree,doesn’t rust,is amazingly thin,gets & holds a great edge and has an almost custom handle all for under $250 + FREE SHIPPING with CKTG!!!
