Konosuke is a name that reverberates with most knife lovers. Their reputation for fit and finish is equaled by the outstanding grinds and edges that the various blacksmiths give these much-loved blades. The owners of Konosuke have curated one of the finest lines of kitchen cutlery spanning the extremes of price and exclusivity, but without ever taking their eyes off the brandís hallmark levels of quality in every regard.
Some knives have an aesthetic appeal that sets them apart from the usual run-of-the-mill blades. Some have a feel and character that earns them the reputation of being something extra special. The Konosuke SKD Tsuchime Gyuto
is that kind of a knife. It ticks all of the Konosuke boxes with regard to quality of construction, design, and aesthetics.
The blade is made from SKD semi stainless steel which is often thought of as a stainless version of a carbon steel because of its feel and ability to take an edge. The edge of this blade is symmetrically ground and is as good as any grind gets!
One of the most outstanding aesthetic qualities of the blade is the hammered face, featuring a wonderful grey colored kurouchi finish. This is quite simply one of the most beautiful knives we sell. Add the classic burnt chestnut handle and you have a true masterpiece of design construction and purpose!
