Considered to be one of the best lines as an introduction to Japanese knives, the DP series is constructed with a core of VG-10 stainless steel sandwiched between a layer of softer stainless for ease of sharpening. This line is constructed with a Black Stamina wood handle and stainless steel bolster. The 150mm Gokujo Boning knife is a close cousin to the western-style boning knife. A little more swept than the western-style, it allows for more control when taking out larger bones. These knives are known for their superior performance for the price.
Blade length: 150mm
Overall length: 305mm
Spine thickness at heel: 2.2mm
Please note we can only ship Tojiro knives in the USA.
I really like this one. The Gokujo is basically a Japanese version of a Western boning knife. The fit & finish is very good and it was exceptionally sharp OOTB- I felt no need to sharpen it before taking it to work. The only minor quibbles I have are that the unsharpened portion near the heel end of the blade is a bit larger than it would need to be,and that the knife was a little larger than I thought it would be.
All in all this is a superb knife and a screaming bargain at the price.
product better than i hoped for,delivered as promised,very pleased
