The 270mm gyuto is the largest gyuto that we generally sell and it does take up some space! Every inch of it is made with super high quality Ginsan steel and is strong enough to take on any task in your kitchen. These are hand forged Japanese knives, made by Mr. Shigeki Tanaka, and are truly works of art. There is tradition, going back a thousand years, in every knife. We are very proud to have been the first US company to carry these knives and we know that you will be thrilled to own one!

    First let me start by saying this is a bit of a project knife. First as I pinch very far up the blade I grinded in a finger notch in the was flat machi/choil. Then I rounded and polished both the machi and spine. Finally I put and edge on it, and she was ready to rock.
    After cutting a little over 100 pounds of various produce with it the first day I am amazed at how awesome this thing is. The balance point is very far up the blade maybe 1 inch or more from the handle, this for me is a very nice thing. The handle is very well finished, very smooth no gaps. The grind is very good on this knife just the right amount of convex straight shinogi line. The pear skin kurouchi is a great touch, not smooth but not harsh and rough, great non-stick properties. And finally the edge, this steel and the master forging and heat treating of this is incredible. It got super sharp and stayed sharp for a very very long time!
    I love this knife! If you are thinking about getting this knife please do, you will love it. Just know that you will have to do some finishing work on it.
