Ohishi Kurouchi Tsuchime Blue Super Gyuto 210mm Pakka Handle
The core steel these knives utilize is Blue Super carbon steel. They will hold an incredible edge for a long while (one must keep clean and dry it often to prevent it from rusting, and a benign discolouration will form regardless).
We highly recommend these Ohishi 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.
