You want a completely handmade Japanese knife that is high performance, made out of a steel (Shirogami 1) often claimed by knife nuts to be one of the sharpest and easiest to sharpen carbon steels out there, and fits within your budget? Then look no further than Goko Hamono.
These knives are incredibly attractive and razor sharp at an affordable price point. Fit and finish is excellent. The Nashiji (pear skinned) finish makes these knives look rustic. But don't be fooled, they are nothing but rustic. A true work of art all wrapped in at an affordable price. What more could you want?
A 210mm gyuto is by far one of our most popular knife styles and length. Whether you are a home cook or a busy on the line professional chef, there's just something about 210mm that fits the sweet spot for most. Kind of like having a shoe that's half a size larger so when you decide to put on a warmer pair of socks, the shoe still fits seamlessly. To tie it back to knives, what we mean is, 210mm is a very versatile length which belongs in any kitchen!
