Konosuke GS+ Gyuto 210mm
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. 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.
