Ohishi Nashiji Blue #2 Gyuto 240mm Rosewood Handle
*Video demo with 240mm Gyuto Maple Handle Variant
The Tadafusa Nashiji gyuto is a perfect blade to get a taste of carbon steel without the full maintenance headache, thanks to the stainless cladding that protects most of the surface area from rust, while you can enjoy the long edge life and sharpness of blue #2 carbon steel. We find this construction to be the best of both types of steel, and hope more people try out this amazing high-carbon steel!
A chef's knife ('Gyuto' in Japanese) is the most versatile blade that can handle almost anything in the kitchen. Their shape and often generous edge length mean that whether it's cutting small tomatoes or portioning a large roast, you can do it with one blade. Most cooks have multiple chef's knives and it is not hard to justify getting one more when it has so much utility.
