We are very pleased to introduce these recent additions to our lineup from Tsunehisa Hamono. The company is quite large and has about 30 smiths making a wide variety of knives from some very interesting steels. In this case, AUS-10which is made by a steel company located in Tokai called Aichi Steels. It is a part of a family of steels that boast a high chromium content coupled with varying amounts of carbon. AUS-10 has the highest carbon content of the bunch. As the number decreases the carbon reduces. This is a really good steel for kitchen knives.
Gyutos are a westernized version of the classic chef knife, used for everything in the kitchen as a jack of all trades.
The lovely Damascus cladding is enhanced by a finely finished oak octagonal. This is an extremely versatile gyuto
that has looks and a fit and finish as good as many higher-priced varieties.
