Shoichi Hashimoto Yuuzan Gyuto 240mm Taihei Makassar Ebony Handle (#001)
The sense of ‘shokunin’ imbued in each of the Hashimoto blades is just incredible; the expertly shaped convex-ground blade offers optimal cutting performance while minimizing food stiction, and the carbon twisted damascus steel (no need to choose between white or blue steel, this one has both!), provides not only a beautiful pattern, but also a fun sharpening experience.
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.
