Hitohira FJ SG2 Nickel Damascus Gyuto 210mm Linen Micarta 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 at Tosho are very excited to present this special line of Damascus knives from the FJ line, a series with an illustrious history of making highly functional blades with excellent consistency and quality fit and finish.
A sight to behold, the FJ SG2 Damascus knives owe their stunning appearance to a unique acid etching process that also brings out a special texture, helping with releasing food off of the blade surface. Thanks to the high hardness and powder metallurgy of SG2 steel, this blade offers a long-lasting edge and protection against corrosion from acidic ingredients such as citrus fruits. For pragmatists looking for a high performing blade marrying beauty and practicality, look no further than the FJ SG2 Damascus.
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.
