Kogetsu Mandai Stainless Gyuto 180mm Imitation Mahogany Handle


The Kogetsu line of knives is made by a smith working in tandem with his son under a workshop called Goko Hamono. Committed to the path of blademaking in his early 20’s, his philosophy revolves around the pursuit of functional perfection in every knife coming out of his forge. Each knife is individually forged by hand and finished with a rustic look, giving each blade its individual characteristics. The convex (aka. Hamaguri) grind seen on the edge is individually done by the maker. Every time we get these, it’s like Christmas.

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.
