Hitohira Togashi White #1 Stainless Clad Kasumi Gyuto 240mm Ebony Handle
Hitohira Togashi knives have some of the best steel treatment, aesthetics, and fit and finish from Hitohira. Kenji Togashi-san is a mastersmith who works almost exclusively with the family sharpener to create superb cutting tools that are extremely rewarding to sharpen. We recommend Togashi blades to cooks with a deep appreciation for craft and forging, with healthy interest in hand sharpening and polishing with whetstones.
The Togashi Stainless clad Kasumi series is an impressive blade combining aesthetics, fit and finish, a durable edge, and ease of sharpening. A milky Kasumi finish complements a bright silver edge, while the choil and spine are polished to an elegant mirror finish. On the handle, a deep brown ebony contrasts a ferrule of buffalo horn.
Featuring a carbon steel edge produced from White #1, the Togashi Kasumi line is ideal for professional and home chefs who work in busy kitchens requiring a high capacity of cutting performance. Its exceptionally durable edge is made to handle high workloads, combined with a blade convexity offering excellent food release. If you are looking for a versatile and sturdy blade with incredible sharpness, these beautiful and high performing Togashi blades are the ones for you.
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.
