The GS line of lasers has been in production for several years and has recently seen an upgrade to the current “plus” status. The GS+ line focuses on details we feel make a difference in the life of the blade. Improvements include a raised HRC to 61-62, smoother grinds, and even excellent fit and finish.
Togatta means pointed in Japanese, and this name is aptly used in conjunction with this classic French profile blade. The knife is almost a cross between a sujihiki
and a gyuto
and can perform many cutting and slicing tasks around the kitchen. Of course, it is a true laser, boasting a thin 2.2mm spine at the heel and a behind-the-edge grind that is quite extraordinary.
