210mm gyutos are the staples of many home kitchen warriors along with pro users who enjoy a shorter blade. They are all-around workhorses capable of processing almost any ingredients. The Tsunehisa G3 Migaki Gyuto
is a fairly light blade, but not a laser, with a medium height and thickness. It has a sharp and precise feel to it. The profile is quite flat with a small amount of belly for those rocking cuts. Fit and finish are very good indeed, with a nicely finished choil and spine. The walnut and maple handle is oval shaped and very comfortable in hand.
The blade is made with a core of G3 (Gin3 or Silver #3) which is a stainless carbon steel containing 13% added chromium. The outstanding attribute of G3 is how it echoes the character of Japanese carbon steels, with a hardness similar to Shirogami #2. Its edge retention is only slightly inferior to Shirogami #2, but the fact that it combines ease of sharpening, carbon steel character, and ease of maintenance makes it a great choice for those who donít want the added work required by a full carbon blade. The core steel is clad with a softer stainless steel for added strength and resistance to shocks. The hand-chiseled kanji is a lovely addition to this great looking gyuto
