This great looking gyuto is made from the ever popular VG-10 stainless steel. VG-10 is sometimes called V-Gold 10 and it is arguably the most commonly used stainless steel in the Japanese kitchen knife industry. There are several reasons for this, primary among them are its exceptional stain resistance and its ability to take a very sharp edge. Some VG-10 knives can be harder to sharpen than other steels but the smiths at Takayuki have developed a special tempering technique which results in a hardness of 60 HRC while being much easier to sharpen.
For many home cooks the 210mm gyuto is the number one choice, the most valuable tool in their kitchen. This is the knife that you can reach for time after time, task after task. With this blade length these chef’s knives are a perfect tool in any kitchen. They can tackle just about any cutting or chopping task. The edge length comes in at 215mm and combined with the slightly shorter height of 45mm results in a slim blade that resembles a classic French profile knife. It is double sided, so it is useful to right- and left-handed users.
This is a great looking knife that is a breeze to maintain, performs like a champ, and comes at a really affordable price.
