180mm GYUTO #098
180mm Gyuto. A classic chef knife. The Gyuto shape was developed by Japanese knifemakers in the second half of the 19th century when western-made chefs' knives started to be seen in Japan. Gyuto literally means 'beef/cow sword'.
Low carbon cladding - laminated in-house
Aogami (blue paper) no.2 carbon steel core for a 'san-mai' (three layer) blade. Aogami 2 is a really great cutlery steel alloyed with around 1.5% added tungsten, enabling extra hardness and toughness. We do like the contrast we get between the cladding and core steel with this combination of materials.
