Harukaze means windy spring, and has since become one of the our best brands for good quality bang for the buck knives with high performance and excellent steels.
This fine looking gyuto is made from the ubiquitous stainless steel known as VG-10. It is also called V-Gold 10 and it is, hands down, the most used stainless steel in the Japanese kitchen knife industry. There are several reasons for this popularity, leading among them are the great stain resistance of the steel and its ability to take a very sharp edge.
This is a classic gyuto and is the most popular blade shape used by American cooks. It's on the long side for a gyuto at 245mm, which adds balance and versatility to the knife. The edge is double-sided, so it is useful to right- and left-handed users. It is also a breeze to maintain. This is a high performer and great looker at a very attractive price.
