Myojin Riki Seisakusho SG2 Kasumi Gyuto 180mm Wenge Handle
This line of knives are sharpened by a talented young sharpener, Naohito Myojin, who is also responsible for producing a long time fan-favourite, 'Fujiyama' series from Konosuke company.
These stunningly finished knives are perfect for pragmatists looking for a high performing blade with a long-lasting edge with minimum rust management, thanks to the SG2 steel and excellent grinding done by Myojin (actually, who wouldn't want this?). This edge is thin, and it may chip if used without proper technique or care. We recommend using it slowly with gentle pressure at first, to get acquainted with the blade.
If you are looking for a stainless workhorse blade with a high level of fit and finish, this is for you.
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.
