The Fujiwara FKM Gyuto
measures in at with an impressive 270mm blade length. You really do need a larger kitchen or a chopping board with some serious real-estate to get the most out of this cutting machine.
But if you have that space in your home or commercial kitchen then this is a mighty tool indeed. The 270mm gyuto
is great when you have large jobs like cutting several bunches of celery or a whole bag of carrots at once. They are a great prep workhorse and preferred size by many professional cooks.
With a fairly generous blade height of 55mm, these knives are perfect for those with larger hand or seekers of increased finger to board clearance.
This is a wonderful transition knife for chefs used to the heavier and bulkier western chef knives. It is way more responsive and nimble and is far less fatiguing to use. Its relatively thin grind enhances the cutting abilities and thus the effort required to get through that pile of veggies!
The tough and semi-stainless steel blade is high in Vanadium and Molybdenum and makes daily maintenance a breeze. The black Pakka wood handle is also easy on the eye and hand. It gives the knife a very neutral balance point just around the ferrule.
This knife is easy to use. Easy on the pocket. And very easy to recommend.
For Care: Please wash with a powdered cleanser (we recommend Bar Keeper's Friend and towel dry after you clean it. If you let these drip dry they can spot and rust a bit.
