Masamoto VG Series - Gyuto 210mm

Masamoto Sohonten have been making knives for over 150 years and are considered to be the leading sushi knife manufacturer in Japan. The quality and fit and finish of their knives is top notch.

Made from Hyper Molybdenum Vanadium and finished with a Duracon western handle these knives are made specially for the western market.

The largest of the gyutos we sell in this range, the gyuto can be translated as 'cow sword' with more a meat bias. This size knife is perfect for the larger jobs such as cutting up meat joints, filleting large fish and dealing with larger veg. Pair with a smaller petty and you'll have the perfect combination to cope with almost anything in the kitchen!

Please note this knife is sharpened to a 70/30 edge.
