One of the most recent additions to our range of knives from Konosuke is the SKD line. These knives are perfect examples of why Konosuke is one of our most popular and sought-after brands.
The SKD Gyuto
240mm is a stellar all-around chef knife. It is made from SKD stainless steel, hardened to about 62 Rockwell. It is a san-mai construction with a core that is fully stainless wrapped in another stainless steel for protection and shock resistance. Daily maintenance is reduced considerably over carbon steel knives.
This is the longest knife in the SKD range and it is a perfect tool for chefs who like larger knives for the increased productivity they afford. Usually Konosuke overstates their edge length as is the norm for Sakai knives. But this is made in Sanjo City, where they understate lengths. But donít let the size dissuade you if you are a home chef and like large knives. This actual edge length on this knife is 245mm and it has the nimble feel of a smaller blade.
This particular example is fitted with a D-shaped ho wood handle with buffalo horn ferrule. We also have other handle types available.
