    Fujimoto Hammer Tone SLD Gyuto 210mm

     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 Fujimoto Hammer Tone - The Hammer Tone is the rock-star of the Fujimoto line, with its striking good looks and sexy shine. This line took almost two years of collaboration and design to create, and we will be continuing to add more shapes as they come out of development.

    The name "Hammer Tone" comes from the freshly forged look and the X-shaped hammer marks on the carbonized “kurouchi” surface. The octagonal walnut handle accents the blade’s look beautifully and fits perfectly into any size of hand. This handle gives the blade an overall light feeling and forward balance.

    The core steel is SLD semi-stainless steel, which was originally designed by Hitachi for cutting other steels. It holds an edge as long as a carbon steel but is much easier to care for.

    A NOTE ABOUT RUST

    Semi-stainless steel is a compromise between the edge retention of carbon steel
    and the rust resistance of stainless. This steel will rust if you let it. To avoid “bad” rust (orange rust) Wipe the knife dry with a dry cloth after use. By this we mean: between cutting and putting the knife down, wipe it dry. Overtime the blade will begin to protect itself with an oxide layer (grey to dark grey “good” rust), this will slow the reaction time but not inhibit the rust entirely. Maintain the good habit of drying off your knife.

    USE  

    • Only cut food you can bite through with this knife. Hard foods can chip the blade. No olive pits, bones,  lobster shells, woody stems or parmesan rinds. Cutting frozen food is especially bad because the cold will make hard steel even more brittle. If you wouldn’t chew it with your own teeth, don’t cut it.  

    • Your cutting surface is the biggest culprit of dulling your knife. Use wood. End-grain wood is especially good. Plastic can be fine too, but certainly not glass,  granite or bamboo

    • The edge of your knife works best sliding forwards or backwards. Scraping the knife edge sideways will dull or damage the edge. Instead, use the spine of the knife to move foods across the cutting board. Do not twist the edge or pry with the edge, this is the worst screwdriver you ever bought and these motions will certainly damage the edge. Listen to the knife! If you can hear the edge making a “tink”  sound on the cutting board, change what you are doing.  

    CLEANING  

    • After use, wash the knife by hand with regular dish soap, rinse with hot water  and dry by hand immediately. Dishwashers are very bad for knives.  

    • Wood handles may dry out over time and exposure to water. Simply treat them  with some food safe mineral oil or beeswax.  

    • If you see orange rust, remove it. The scrubby side of a sponge can do the trick.  If it’s still not coming off try baking soda and water mixed into a paste or a product called Barkeeper’s Friend.  

    STORING  

    • Protect the edge; for your safety and to avoid edge damage. A simple blade cover  will do the trick if you keep knives in a drawer or travel case. 

    • A convenient wall magnet made with wood is a great way to show off your knives.  Be sure to put it back spine first, then roll it onto the blade face. This will keep the  edge from contacting the wood first.  

    • The good-ol’ counter top block can keep knives at the ready and protected. So can drawer inserts. Whatever the method, keep the edge from touching anything else.
