Dark brooding looks coupled with great performance and value for money makes this gyuto a real winner.
We all said "wow" when we first cast our eyes over this knife. The kurouchi finish on the blade is awesome; if you turn the knife upside down the finish on the edge just looks like a violent storm approaching, you can even see the whisps of clouds! Being white number 1 steel this will be very reactive so will need wiping down after every use. The walnut one piece handle really contrasts nicely with the blade; it's slightly longer than other knives we sell which gives it a very elegant look. There is no ferrule on this handle either. All in all this is a great value knife and one that sells out very quickly after it has come back into stock.
