Toshihiro Wakui Nashiji White #2 Stianless Clad Gyuto 180mm Ho Wood Handle

$210.00

Wakui blades are one of our favourite knives because the quality you get for the price is very hard to beat. They are well balanced in the hand and feel durable because of the robust spine. The bevels are ground thin and very flat, making this a high performing blade. White #2 carbon steel is easy to sharpen, can take on a very sharp edge, and hold it for a long time. The core steel will oxidize and patina beautifully during use, whilst being easy to maintain thanks to the attractive stainless Nashiji cladding. We encourage those searching for their first carbon steel Japanese knife to look no further and discover Wakui.

**Please note, that the handle installation on Wakui knives is done by a traditional tang "burn-in" without any glue. These handles can become loose due to the environment and/or exposer to high heat. Please see the last photo for reference. Here is a video demonstrating how to fix the loose handle.

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.
