Introducing the Shibata Koutetsu 195mm Battleship Gyuto, a stunning knife design by Takayuki Shibata, who has been making waves in the world of Japanese kitchen knives for over a decade. Inspired by the bow of Japan's first ironclad ship, the Koutetsu, this knife features a unique reverse short sword tip that has been updated with a more pronounced angle and point.
Crafted from R-2 stainless steel and hammer-forged in a san-mai style, this knife boasts a subtle hairline finish on the blade face and hand-engraved kanji for a touch of traditional Japanese style. The edge profile has a slight belly over almost the entire length, making it ideal for rocking style users. With its shorter edge length and fine pointed tip design, this knife is incredibly versatile and can handle both regular processing duties as well as more detailed work.
With a spine thickness of 2mm, this knife is a true laser that needs to be used to believe its performance.
Crafted by Shibata-san in Fukuyama City, the Shibata Koutetsu 195mm Battleship Gyuto is a true work of art that any serious chef would be proud to own. Order yours today and experience the unbeatable performance and style of this stunning Japanese kitchen knife.
