The Naoshima Gyuto is a handcrafted extravagant high quality knife to enrich your kitchen. A super sharp blade, stainless, well balanced and simply beautiful. Each knife is made by ancient methods that require ingenious craftsmanship. The handle ends are made of black ebony, while the main part of the handle is made of dalbergia wood. In addition, blue stable wood in combination with white copper is used to give this knife a high end look.
The Gyuto is the exotic among knives. Originally made for the preparation of Japanese dishes, it has long since found its way into international kitchens. A Gyuto knife is ideally suited for the preparation of wok dishes and wafer-thin sushi. It cuts and chops meat, fish, vegetables and herbs with ease.
This collection is named after Japanese islands and each knife is as beautiful as the islands themselves. Characteristic of the WASABI Island Special Collection are the colorful handles, which are well balanced to ensure long, comfortable and fatigue-free working.
But the blades are also a real eye-catcher. They consist of a VG10 Core, covered by a 67-layer high quality Japanese Damascus steel. Due to the ancient production methods a hardness of 60 ± 2 HRC is reached. In the end, each knife gets a hand sharpening finish. This ensures a long-lasting sharpness, which takes your cooking to a new level and increases your pleasure.
Knives from this collection are the ideal gift for passionate and aspiring hobby chefs, making even the most demanding friends and family members very satisfied.
