The Gyuto knife 21 cm Tojiro DP Hammered 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”.
all 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 Tojiro DP Hammered collection is another example of the Japanese cutlery's ability to combine great materials and high levels of construction and design, all at an affordable price. 

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 steel is laminated with a softer stainless steel which is given a hammered kurouchi finish. This enhances the ease at which the knife can be sharpened and provides an element of support and ductility to the harder core. It also aids with food release while adding a great aesthetic quality to the blade.

The DP Hammered 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.
