Handcrafted with centuries-old swords smith precision by highly skilled Japanese artisans, the Elite Carbon 270mm Gyuto accommodates left- and right-handed users. Softer carbon SK-5 steel is a feature you will love at home or at work for its ease of use in slicing meats, vegetables and fruits of almost any type. The full-length edge from tip to heel is also easier to sharpen before or after every use. This is a large knife but it may well become your most used blade with its multipurpose capabilities. The black Pakka wood Western style handle is triple riveted with a stainless steel bolster. This creates a perfect balance that will feel just right in any size grip. Kikuichi Elite Carbon knives are made of a mono steel soft carbon con-struction and can react to acids, develop some staining without some care, and over time will slowly develop a grayish patina. Careful washing and thoroughly drying the blade after any cutting or chopping task will help prevent oxidation development. The Kikuichi 270mm Elite Gyuto is a knife with a nimble feel, classic beauty and fine edge profile that makes smoother cuts with less effort. This is a big knife for big jobs but one that will also find pride of place in most professional or home kitchens where size and speed matter.
