Hitohira NM Tsuchime Gyuto 180mm Imitation Mahogany Handle

$166.00

NM line is made from forged VG-1 stainless steel with various finishes. NM refers to the first two letters of the two makers responsible for the blade. The steel feels incredibly finely grained, no doubt thanks to the hand-forging, and we found that it offers great edge at around #1000 - #3000, with maximum edge retention.

It features a very slightly hollow ground bevels, making these knives extremely thin behind the edge, yet they maintain good thickness on the spine for stability. We recommend these knives for both experienced users and beginners with practicality and performance in mind.

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.
