The Tojiro Shippu Black Gyuto knife 18 cm is a general purpose knife that most chefs would say they could not do without.
It is the Japanese answer to the western “chef knife”.
Tall at the heel, flat throughout, and rounded toward the tip of the knife for rock chopping, it isperfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping a full range of fruits, vegetables, and other foods.
The short, 18 cm version, makes the Gyuto Shippu Black a versatile, nimble, multi purpose knife.
The Tojiro Shippu Black is a new, extremely attractive version of the best-selling Shippu DP Damascus knife series.
The unique combination of west style blades with Japanese style handles now has a stylish, darkened robe.
Practical blades of 24° with a double cut made of high quality Damascus steel: 63 layers of stainless steel, protecting the hard core of VG-10 steel, an extremely hard core alloy with the addition of cobalt, hardened to a hardness of 60+/-1 HRC Rockwell, developed by Takefu industries.
The core is clad with 31 layers on each side with a softer, corrosion-resistant 13-chrome steel.
The effect of the waves propagating on the blade is highlighted by a black oxide coating formed in the oxidation of steel.
This solution increases the life of the knife and its resistance to corrosion.
Handles blend beautifully with the blackened steel.
The Shippu Black series consists of traditional Japanese shaped knives. The relatively large traditional D-handle on these knives is made from light-weight tempered chestnut wood, reinforced with a resin ring.
Because they are also protected with transparent varnish, they show high resistance to moisture and discoloration.
