Daitoku Blue #2 Gyuto 180mm Walnut Handle

Daitoku knives are one of the most unique blades even for us. The almost-indigo coloured rustic kurouchi finish along with the hand-carved walnut handles with brass bolster make for such an incredible aesthetics. 

Not only are they beautiful, the hand-forged, hand-sharpened carbon steel blades retain their sharpness for a long time without being difficult to sharpen using whetstones (we recommend the Imanishi Arashiyama  #1000). We do, however, caution the users to keep these blades dry as often as possible to prevent possible rusting. As for all carbon steel knives, a beautiful patina will form overtime.

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.
