The Gyuto knife 18 cm Tojiro Zen 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 Zen a versatile, nimble, multi purpose knife.
The Tojiro Zen collection radiates the Japanese tradition of knife-making.
The blade of the knives is comprised of three layers. The central layer of the blade is made 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 a softer, corrosion-resistant 13-chrome steel.
The Zen series consists of traditional Japanese shaped knives. The relatively large traditional D-handle on these knives is made from light-weight oak wood with a black PC resin ferrule.
The handle is shaped in the traditional Japanese D-shape. Basically this means it is suited for right-handed use, but the a-symmetry does not bother for left-handed users.
