Here is a new line and design by Konosuke Japan in collaboration with blacksmith Mutsumi Hinoura. The blade is made with White #2 steel and stainless clad, which offers easy maintenance with great edge retention and sharpness. The rockwell hardness is made especially for this line to be 65 HRC. This handle is made with burned chestnut wood. 

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.
