We have a very high regard for the knives that come out of the Tanaka workshop in Miki City. They range from basic knives to some of the most sought after collectibles. The Sekiso line of cutlery is a mid-priced range of kitchen knives made for both professional and home cooks seeking a great performing knife that is easy to sharpen and has a look that screams quality in both construction and aesthetic.

This 240mm gyuto has a core steel forged of Aogami (blue paper #2) steel, and a softer iron damascus cladding. As the knife is fully reactive, it will patina over time, so care should be taken to avoid this issue.

Tanaka gyutos are real performers because of their fantastic convex grinds. This allows the blade to effortlessly slip through food items while minimizing food sticking. All of the knives from Tanaka come with a very sharp edge out of the box, and will most likely not need much more than a stropping to achieve a truly wicked sharp edge. These blades are real Goldilocks knives, not too thick and not too thin! They can best be described as solid middleweight contenders, and should be on the list of any chef seeking a nice balance between laser-like performance and workhorse strength and toughness.

This particular knife is supplied with a lovely dyed maple custom octagonal handle that matches the balance and looks of the blade to perfection.
