This is the largest of the gyutos we stock in this range, and it's a beast!
With the fabulous swirling cloud like pattern on this blade and the delightful handle this is simply sex in a knife. Each blade is unique and hand made in Japan in small batches.
Its VG10 steel core is very hard to make and as a result only the best metal smiths are allowed to make this knife. Super sharp, sexy, beautiful and an amazing tool in the kitchen.
