The  KAI  Michel BRAS Gyuto knife 27 cm is an all-purpose knife, perfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping a full range of fruits, vegetables and other foods.
With its slightly convex blade the knife glides smoothly through the food.

Blade wooden guard included.

The knives in the set of Michel BRAS embody the optimum of function and beauty. Each has a distinct blade flexibility and subtle handle form. The assembly procedures are all carefully completed by hand.
They are more than just cutlery. Indeed, these cooking implements are more like precious "jewels" than ordinary kitchen utensils.

Strong and flexible three-layered blade

The blade is produced in three layers: a hard VG10 stainless steel of 59±1 HRC is sandwiched between two layers of a softer, more flexible stainless steel SUS420J2. This makes for better resistance and durability. Furthermore, a titanium coating has been added to enhance its anti-oxidation properties. The matt satin finish makes for a beautiful and sober appearance.

Oblong-shaped handle spares the hand while cutting

Made of black laminated wood resistant to water and moisture, the handle has a distinct chestnut shape.
The apex of the handle naturally accommodates the fingers and the hand does not tire while cutting. 
The beautiful grain of the wood and its silken feel deliver an unparallel feeling.
The cross section of the handle is in the shape of a chestnut. This ergonomic shape characteristic of traditional Japanese knives is easy to grasp and easy on the (right) hand wielding the knife. 


This is the logo for the  KAI  Group. Michel BRAS series were created from the liaison of one of the most famous chefs and one of the best knife makers in the world.

Plain wood sheath

High-quality hard maple wood fashioned into a simple rectangular shape. A magnet inside the sheath holds the knife snugly in place. 

Item Number (on the metal end)

Each knife is inscribed with a number indicating its category so that the user can identify it at a glance. 

Sharp blades, a light and comfortable feel in the hands and beautiful like jewels: Michel BRAS knives are for all those who love cooking.
