The 240mm Gyuto shape is very versatile, allowing for higher rocking, and a bit extra blade for long slices. What are the benefits of a blade from a top blacksmith? Any questions of which steel or grind is the best fade away to just... wow. His signature heat treat for VG10 brings the steel to its maximum potential, with a balance of toughness, easy care and excellent sharpness. The edge delivers right out of the box, and it is rare I am not tempted to touch them up on the stones even when brand new.
Add in the real deal forged Damascus, and you have an extremely high quality knife by an excellent blacksmith. This is a one time series for us, so when they are gone they are gone!
