The Masashi Kuroshu feels like it looks. When we asked Masashi-san how he achieved this truly unique “Kurochi” finishing on this Damascus steel knife, he laughed. Like he’s going to divulge his trade secrets to a buncha punks like us! SLD stainless, water buffalo horn collar, charred chestnut handle, 100% gorgeous.
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.
