About the Shape -I like cutting bread with my Gyuto because it doesn’t make a lot of crumbs. But sometimes you need serrations to cut super crusty sourdough loaves or freshly baked French baguettes. This is really just for cutting bread, not your tomatoes! That’s what your other knives are for.
About Shizu Morinoki -Shizu Hamono is a relatively “new” knife maker, established in 1959 in Seki by Masami Horibe, he grew in Seki city, the city of blacksmiths, and naturally became a craftsman. Their Morinoki line sports a clean, rustic aesthetic that we love. They fit right into a modern kitchen, and the line is perfect for cooks of any skill level that want a reliable knife that doesn't have to be babied. The stainless steel takes a great edge but doesn't chip easily, and the zelkova handle is simple and elegant.
