Hitohira Imojiya Kuma Blue #2 Nashiji Tsuchime Gyuto 200mm Pakka Handle
Featuring an excellent handle feel, convex edge, and san mai construction, the Hitohira Kuma makes for a very appealing and usable line of knives. Using Blue #2 carbon steel at its cutting edge, these knives boast a great edge life and make for fun sharpening jobs. The Kuma line is built to last, and you'll enjoy using them along the way.
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.
