The blade of this Tsunehisa Gyuto
boasts an impressive level of thinness—it's not exactly laser-thin, yet elegantly tapers distally towards the point. For its price range, the level of craftsmanship is noteworthy. The full tang, crafted from stainless steel for robustness, seamlessly transitions into the bolster for a harmonious design. The tang is complemented by an eye-catching brown oak handle, securely fixed with three stainless pins. A tasteful addition to this affordable Tsunehisa knife is the beautifully engraved kanji characters—a charming surprise.
For those contemplating an entry into the universe of Japanese kitchen knives, this appealing Tsunehisa gyuto
warrants strong consideration for a spot on their list.
