Hitohira Futana Stainless Tsuchime Damascus Gyuto 180mm Cherry Wood Handle
Hitohira is our brand new supplier that has been absolutely killing it. The president, Mr. Hokuto Aizawa, has traveled the world in his mid-20s and saw firsthand how Japanese kitchen knives are adored throughout the northern hemisphere and decided to make the products even more accessible. Now, Hitohira brings many new and old favourites back into our shelves with consistency, making our clients even happier.
For Hitohira all lines, there are abbreviations and pseudonyms to organize and identify the products. If you have any questions about the individual craftsman involved, send us an email, and we can do our best to clarify within our limits.
We highly recommend the Futana blades as gifts for culinary students, professional cooks, young professionals moving into their first apartment, newly weds and more!
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.
