KICHIJI WA-GYUTOU / CHEF'S KNIFE 240mm
Kichiji Wa-Gyuto is created with unique knife forging techniques from Sakai, Osaka.
Molybdenum is one of the more modern high quality stainless steels.
Our black smith in Sakai creates knives that are focussed on performance quality. it strives to forge knives which
cannot be beaten on sharpness and therefore employs only single-edge blades,
much shaper than the traditional double-edged western style blade. These knives come highly
recommended by Kataba Japanese Knife Shop and Japanese chef’s for despite simple looks,
they are simply unbeatable interns of performance.
The balancing of the handle with the blade allows for the handling.
To sharpen these knives, a ratio of 9:1 should be employed, with the right-hand side receiving 90%
of the sharpening, and the left, only 10%.
This series of knives is very easy to use, and has strong corrosion resistance , however they do need to be maintained properly.
Recommend for both professional chefs and beginners.
