The Gyuto knife 18 cm Tojiro Flash 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 is
perfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping a full range of fruits, vegetables, and other foods.

The short, 18 cm version, makes the Gyuto Flash a versatile, nimble, multi purpose knife.

The elegant Tojiro Flash series features a blade that has a folded and forged construction of 63 layers of Damascus steel.
This process allows the thin center layer of VG-10 steel to be extremely hard & sharp but the blade retains flexibility & strength. 

With a VG10 steel cutting core and and a softer stainless steel alloy clad, Tojiro Flash knives are super sharp at 61+/-1 HRC Rockwell and hold their edge for a long period of time.

The Micarta handle is inlayed with stainless steel for a stunning appearance.
Micarta is a revolutionary new handle material that is made from linen and synthetic resin compounded by extreme amounts of pressure and heat creating a wood-like grain and feel with the absolute ultimate in durability. 

Tojiro Flash knives are full tang and have a special diagonal bolster (Tsubawhich adds extra equivalence and weight.
