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.
About Masashi Kuroshu -Masashi-san started his own workshop in 2013, after learning the family trade alongside his older brother Kazuomi at Yoshikane Hamono. Despite his young age, Masashi makes a beautifully polished and crazy sharp blade and is able to make his steel harder than other makers through special heat-treating processes.
The ultra-sexy kuroshu series is everything a knife should be. Razor-sharp, super easy to care for, and it cuts like a dream! The damascus-clad SLD stainless steel is rugged and reliable, not to mention easy to care for and clad in 32 STUNNING layers of stainless steel on either side!
