Matsubara Blue #2 Nashiji Gyuto 180mm.This 180mm gyuto is used to cut and slice a variety of ingredients, be they vegetables, proteins, or fish.
The Matsubara Gyuto is made from the very popular Aogami 2 carbon steel. It is hardened to 62 HRC. This highly rated steel is given a cladding of soft stainless steel using a technique known as san-mai. “San mai” translates as three flat things and it is a well-used method of laminating a core steel on both sides with a different metal. The laminate is given a nashiji, or pear skin, finish. This not only enhances the visual appeal of the knife but offers a huge amount of protection to the otherwise corrosion-prone inner core.
The blade is attached to a finely crafted octagonal handle made from rosewood.
