Konosuke GS+ Gyuto 210mm Purchase options

An extremely stylish, understated and incredibly light gyuto from Konosuke's 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. 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 also has a beautiful matching saya available.

Performance

Pretty sharp out of the box but will benefit from a go on the stones where it will get extremely sharp! Easy to sharpen too.

Beauty

A very elegant, simple knife in terms of looks with a polished finish and an embossed kanji on the blade. The longer khii handle coupled with the excellent fit and finish gives it a very stylish look. 

Comfort

This knife is very light and the finish of the spine and heel means that there are no sharp edges to catch your fingers on. The octagonal wa handle can be used for left or right handed use too and with the balance point being on or around a pinch grip this knife is very comfortable to use.

Durability

This is a very thin knife so care must be taken to not use it on bones or really hard veg such as butternut squash. 

Ease of Care

This is a semi-stainless knife so whilst it won't need the care of a full carbon knife, it isn't completely stainless so some spotting may occur. Word on the street is that it seems pretty stainless but always best to wipe down after use!

Our Verdict

Konsosuke knives are very sought after, and we can see why. The fit and finish on these is excellent and we think they provide great value for money.
