A large gyuto this will handle all of those larger jobs such as joints of meat.


Out of the box we felt that while they were very sharp, these could benefit from a hone or quick pass on a stone to get them even sharper should you wish. 


If you love simplistic beauty you will love these, attention to detail is incredible and the choil (or finger notch) has been rounded to a degree we've not seen before on any of our other knives. Everything is smooth and shiny and a joy to look at!


As mentioned above, all the edges are smooth and curved where your fingers are likely to sit meaning a pinch grip is really comfortable with no sharp bits (except the bit that's supposed to be sharp)!


Powdered steel is a strong steel and providing you don't go near the usual suspects of bones and butternut squash you should be fine!

Ease of care

Powdered steel clad in stainless means that the care of these knives is minimal, just do the usual of wiping after use and never putting them in a dishwasher and that's it!

Value for money

The attention to detail and beautiful fit and finish makes these knives great value for money in our opinion. They'll be a beautiful addition to your knife collection.

Product details

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 get

The knife comes in a red box with gold lettering. Inside there's a stepped cardboard interior with a sharpening instructions leaflet in Japanese. The blade is covered in a brown paper sheath.
