Hitohira Togashi White #2 Kurouchi Gyuto 240mm Tagayasan 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.
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.
