Takamura 180mm Tsuchime VG10 Gyuto

There are famous blacksmiths, and then there's Terukazu Takamura. Forging out of Echizen, Takamura Knives is renowned for creating masterpieces in every sense of the word, focusing on every detail. Any Takamura knife, at any price point, is known for its attractiveness and performance. This is evident as renowned chefs like René Redzepi of Noma and Massimo Bottura of Osteria Francescana favor them.

The VG10 steel, originating from Echizen, is a natural choice for Takamura's line of knives. This line stands out for its affordability, laser-thin grind, excellent fit and finish, stainless steel composition, and hand-hammered (tsuchime) texture. These are some of the thinnest, yet most excellently crafted knives you'll find.

The 180mm Gyuto is a favorite for many. Its blade style is versatile for various cutting tasks and is not overly long like some gyutos. You'll find yourself opting for this 180mm Gyuto over a 165mm santoku more often, due to its convenience and efficiency.

Amazing knive! High maintenance

This is the best knife I ever own. Cuts everything like butter. You need to get this knife if you like Precision cutting. All my prep looks clean and even became faster with it. The only downside of this amazing knife is thats its so delicate. I accidentally broke the tip when I hone it with me 3000 grit ceramic rod. The edge towards the middle got bent in a accidental cut. After 1 week of prep. It took a beating. But I would definitely buy it again now that iknow how to take of it. Definitely not the last takamura knife I will buy. I want to add more to my knife bag
