TOKO TSUCHIME HAND HAMMERED GYUTO 180mm
This is a multi-purpose chef’s knife.
The knife is made from two materials: high-carbon steel shirogami2, forming the blade’s edge, and stainless steel, forming a jacket on both sides.
The hand-hammered finish (Tsuchime) gives it a rustic look and prevents food from sticking to the sides of the blade.
The carbon steel knives require special care to avoid rusting and chipping.
Note: Kogetsu and Toko knives are traditionally crafted by bladesmith Mr Yoshito Yamakawa.
Japanese knives that proudly show their idiosyncrasies that reflect the manufacturing process.
In making these knives, Mr. Yamakawa patiently undertakes fifty steps, the majority of which are done by hand,
to create a durable knife whose sharpness is second to none.
The only machines used in the process are pedal-powered and specially designed for the craft.
Due to each knife being individually crafted, no finish is ever the same;
this is a knife for somebody who cares about performance power, not perfect looks.
