Konosuke HD2 Gyuto 240mm Ho Wood Handle (No Sheath)
Konosuke is one of the most exciting Japanese knife companies to watch out for their appetite to do things differently from the norm. The company is well regarded for its incredible attention to detail and performance when it comes to its products. If you are a lover of beautifully-made functional tools that have a unique design philosophy, join the fandom (and the waitlist..). We at Tosho are extremely proud to be their partners, and look forward to the next shipment!
The HD2 line is made from proprietary semi-stainless steel that takes on an easy patina and a keen edge. The masterfully done convex geometry allows smooth cutting performance through even the toughest of ingredients, without chipping easily. We highly recommend this line to virtually any cook who is looking to invest in a carbon-like stainless steel blade that can handle nearly all tasks.
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.
