Jiro Tsuchime Yo Gyuto 225mm Tagayasan Handle (#244)
This product is currently sold out.
This Yo Gyuto has a touch rounder profile near the heel than usual, and despite being heavy-weight (near 300g), the balance point on this makes you wanting to use it all-day.
As a bonus, its cladding line formation is exceptionally beautiul, particularly on the right side
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.
