Hitohira Imojiya ST Tsuchime Damascus Gyuto 240mm Pakka Handle (Yo)
The Hitohira Imojiya ST line is one that is not unfamiliar with heavy work. Using VG-10 stainless steel, paired with comfortable western-style handles, these knives are a pleasure to work with and care for. With slightly larger handles and leaning towards the heavier side, these blades naturally introduce themselves to those of us with larger hands.
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.
