Excellent out of the box sharpness coupled with a beautiful kurouchi (blacksmith) finish make this a knife that will really stand out in the kitchen both in looks and performance.
The gyuto shape of knife is suitable for most tasks in the kitchen, translating to 'cow sword' it will tackle meat as well as veg prep. It comes in slightly over-sized at around 216mm (being hand-made this can vary slightly) with good knuckle clearance and the balance point is about perfect using a pinch grip.
The profile of the knife is different to the GS+ range, there is a much longer flat spot towards the back before it sweeps up to the tip.
