A simple and stylish gyuto from Konosuke's new GS+ range.
This gyuto from Konosuke is a semi stainless knife, a 3 layer sandwich with the core semi stainless steel clad in a softer steel and machine finished. Incredibly light at only 115g this is a very thin laseresque knife that is very sharp. The height is very good on this knife so great knuckle clearance on the board. Very thin going into the handle at the spine and that continues with a distal taper all the way to the very thin tip. This gyuto is great for rock chopping with a slight flat spot towards the back.
Finished with a beautiful chestnut octagonal handle made by Studio Khii, the gap where the tang goes into the handle is an aesthetic take on traditional method of handling the knives.
This knife has a corresponding saya designed especially.
What we thought about this knife
We have personally tested and reviewed this knife to give you an honest and personal opinion about it and this is how it rates. Remember these scores are a reflection of the company these knives keep, all our knives are great (or we wouldn't sell them) but we can't give them all 5/5. A low score doesn't mean it's a poor knife, it just might be out-trumped by one of our other amazing knives.

What you get with the knife
Beautiful black boxes with the Kanji inlaid on the lid. On the inside you will find a black stepped inlay and your beautiful knife of course inside a black cardboard sheath.
All our knives also come with free blue plasters just in case you're not ready for the sharpness! If you intend to use your knives regularly then we don't advise you to use the boxes for day to day storage, get a magnetic knife rack instead.
