Don't forget these...
Hatsukokoro is a brand in Japan which encompasses some very talented knife makers. The advantage of such a relationship is that one brand can then offer a variety of knives using the steels makers are most skilled at crafting with. This logic extends to finishes, patterns and even handle materials. It's like getting only the best a knife maker has to offer.
Yoshihiro Yauji is a highly skilled knifesmith and the mastermind behind this Ginyo series, silver (Ginsan) #3 tsuchime Damascus knife line. That's a lot to unpack we know! Ginsanko (silver #3) is a stainless steel which has a high carbon content AND feels like a carbon steel knife, without the hassle of extra maintenance. These knives truly have not only gorgeous finishes and patterns, but great attention to detail like a polished choil.
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!
This knife has the benefit of not coming with a handle. That's right we say benefit because that means YOU have the chance to pair this beauty with any one of our custom handles here!
