Jiro Tsuchime Wa Gyuto 225mm Taihei Tagayasan Handle (#260)
This product is currently sold out.
The #260 Wa Gyuto shares many similarities to the #258, being a classic Jiro gyuto with generous heel height and execellent convexing near the cutting edge.
It features a particularly thin tip, so we imagine the horizontal cuts will be a joy with this blade.
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.
