The largest of the Gyutos (the Japanese equivalent of a Chef's knife) in this range. The handmade blade is a work of art and is designed to look like snow.
Using laminated white #2 steel this knife gives you amazing sharpness while still being stain-resistant. The cutting edge though will take on a patina (rust coloured patterning) as it is carbon steel but we like that, it ages well with its owner and takes on a character of its own.
Treat it well and it will last a lifetime.
Our aim is to measure everything as accurately as possible but some specifications (such as hardness for example) are provided by the manufacturer and therefore should be used as a guide only.
What you getBeautiful blue fibre boxes with the Masakage logo and name in silver foil on the lid. On the inside you will find a blue stepped inlay and your beautiful knife of course, wrapped in Japanese newspaper by the craftsmen who made it. So while not working on your knife skills you can catch up your Japanese language skills. Talk about the gift that keeps on giving...
