Masakage Koishi AS Gyuto 270mm

About the Masakage Koishi - The tsuchime (hammered) and kurouchi (black) finish give the impression of river pebbles, this is where the name Koishi comes from. The octagonal cherry wood & black pakka handle, the overall balance and feel is what chefs desire and makes it a Culinary Badass. Think Chuck Norris, but if he was a kitchen knife. Aogami Super is the king of knife steel - super easy to sharpen, gets a laser beam edge, cuts like silk and is very rugged for its hardness. It’s called SUPER for a reason. They are then clad in a softer stainless steel to help lower the possibility of rusting. Just brilliant.


About the Shape - 
Inspired by the profile of a traditional European chef knife, Gyutos are a multi purpose knife with a slight meat cutting bias. “Gyuto” translates to “cow sword.” If you want one knife to do it all, This is it. Starting at 180mm, Gyutos can reach the ridiculously long (and awesome) 370mm. For the at-home or professional cook, we recommend a Gyuto which measures between 210mm and 270mm long.
