Masashi Kemuri Gyuto 240mm

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.

About Masashi Kemuri -Masashi-san makes a beautifully polished and crazy sharp blade, working entirely by himself hand-forging, sharpening, and putting on the handles. He’s also a bit of a risk taker, forging knives in his flip-flops and lighting cigarettes off white-hot knife steel. Bad. Ass. The unassuming Kemuri series is an extremely hard worker thanks to the power of SLD stainless steel, which stays sharp like carbon steel but doesn't rust. The burned chestnut and ox-horn handle adds a flash of sexiness to these slick-looking blades.
