Featuring the most advanced in cutlery steels, stunning aesthetics, and a flexible profile, the Sukenari ZDP-189 240mm gyuto is an outstanding choice for demanding consumers of Japanese cutlery. The ZDP-189 core steel is an advanced powdered metallurgy steel capable of holding an edge for an extremely long time. This makes the knife a great choice for culinary professionals who work extended prep sessions and need a knife that can keep up. It is also a great option for home enthusiasts who value time at the cutting board more than time on the waterstones.
The ZDP-189 core is wrapped in an attractive, mirror polished, Damascus patterned cladding layer. Both the ZDP-189 core and cladding are stainless steel so upkeep is easy. The profile is versatile with generous finger clearance, a sweet spot at the heel for chopping, a gentle belly for rocking, and a thin pointed tip for detail work.
