Description

The gyutoh is the chef’s knife of the Japanese kitchen, used as a general purpose knife for preparing larger cuts of meat and vegetables. It has a blade core of fine carbide steel for very good initial sharpness and cutting edge retention. This FC61 core is embedded in 48 layers of steel which make up the unique Damascus-design pattern on the blade.

Zwilling

The cutting edge is Honbazuke-honed which is a three-stage grinding, sharpening and polishing process that results in razor-like sharpness. The whole length of the cutting edge can be used as there is no finger guard. The smooth join between handle and bolster helps to prevent calluses forming on thumb and forefinger.

To look after your knife in the best way, hand wash only and maintain and sharpen using a whetstone. Using glass, ceramic or stone cutting boards should be avoided as this can prematurely dull the cutting edge, so we’d recommend cutting on a wooden board.

  • FC61 fine carbide steel blade core
  • 48 layers of steel surrounding the core create the Damascus-design
  • FRIODUR ice-hardened for hardness, corrosion-resistance & material elasticity
  • Rockwell hardness of approximately 61
  • Pakka wood handle
  • Steel mosaic pin and handle end cap
  • Symmetrically honed cutting edge
  • Ergonomically-shaped handle
  • Handcrafted in Seki Japan
