Tsunehisa VG10 Tsuchime Gyuto 180mm Purchase options

A great looking all rounder, the gyuto is a perfect choice for the chef who wants a manageable sized knife capable of many cutting and chopping jobs.

Performance

The VG10 cutting edge gives this knife a truly great cutting edge and allows it to keep it for a long time meaning you get to spend more time cooking rather than sharpening.

The stainless steel clad on to each side protects it from corrosion and the dimpled hammer finishes helps prevent sliced of food sticking to the blade by reducing the surface area in contact with the food, they also look great too.

Beauty

The blades look stunning and are certainly eye catching. The 15 layers of stainless steel on each side are hand ground to reveal each one in turn like tree rings. The hammered dimples are a by product of getting the layers to bind together but leave the blade with this wonderful finish.

Comfort

The oval handle has a great feel and the overall grip is good. The balance of the knife is nicely central or neutral. A great knife with a lot of feel.

Please note this handle is technically right-handed due to the slight difference in shape on one side, although we find it absolutely fine for left-handed use.

Durability

Japanese blades are all about sharpness and the ability to cut. To achieve that they are always thinner than most Western knives. As a result a little extra care is needed with them.

That said they are more than up to the job of working in any kitchen be it pro or home.

Ease of care

The stainless steel cladding makes this nice really easy to care for by protecting the cutting edge steel (VG10 in this instance) from rusting. The handle being wood should not be immersed in water so its the usual ritual of use, wipe, dry and store. Job done.

Value for money

Great Japanese blades, comfortable handles, fabulous looks and performance to match. At this price what is not to like?
