Introducing the Sakai Takayuki Sanpou White #2 Kasumi Gyuto
the quintessence of Japanese craftsmanship and cutting precision. Forged in the heart of Sakai, Japan, a city renowned for its centuries-old tradition of blade-making, this 210mm gyuto
embodies a chefs dream.
At 203mm, the blade length is perfect for those who desire control and versatility in their cuts. The 49.5mm blade height offers ample knuckle clearance, allowing for swift chopping without any hindrance.
Weighing in at a comfortable 194 grams, the Sakai Takayuki gyuto is light enough to wield all day without fatigue, yet it has enough heft to glide through ingredients with ease. The core of Shirogami #2 (White #2 Carbon Steel) ensures a razor-sharp edge that lasts, supported by a reactive soft iron cladding for durability. Proper care needs to be given by wiping the blade off to prevent rust after use.
Experience excellent edge retention with Shirogami #2 steel that has a Rockwell hardness of 6263, giving you the confidence that your knife will stand the test of time and the rigors of a professional kitchen. The double bevel edge, ground to a symmetrical 50/50, is ready for both left- and right-handed chefs.
Finally, the handle a work of art in itself. The wenge wood octagonal handle is not only stunning but also ergonomically designed for a comfortable grip, reducing hand fatigue and providing the control that chefs require for perfect cuts every time.
The Sakai Takayuki Sanpou White #2 Kasumi Gyuto is not just a knife; it's an investment in your culinary artistry. Embrace the fusion of tradition and performance, and elevate your cooking experience.
