Much like the traditional Chef’s Knife, the Katana Saya Olivewood Gyuto Knife is perfect for most tasks in the kitchen. The pointed tip helps with delicate filleting of meat and fish. The Gyuto knife is the perfect all-purpose knife in Japanese cooking. This Japanese knife is 20cm in length making it a medium to large blade.
The Eastern Olivewood range comes gift boxed with a wooden ‘Saya’ that offers the perfect protection for your knife as well as your fingers! The blade has a 67 layers of VG-10 Damascus steel, the highest quality steel with a high carbon content that gives it exceptional toughness. VG-10 is one of the most premium steels in Japanese culinary products and can reach a Rockwell hardness rating of up to 63HRC.
The exquisite craftmanship in these knives can be seen in the elegant layered damascus pattern on the blade. The blade is finished with light olivewood handle with opal effect ring, striking an attractive balance between opulence and hard wearing-durability.
