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 and “gyuto” even translates to “cow sword”. If you want one knife to do it all, This is it. The longer blade typically gives the blade a forward balance that allows it to work for you. While the blade would ideally by slid forward or back while cutting, they are also great for folks that prefer to 'rock' their knife while cutting.
About Yu Kurosaki Senko - The Senko (translates as "Flash") knife line from Yu Kurosaki continues Kurosaki's flair for creating something new and fresh within his blacksmithing workshop with the distinctive hammer pattern that creates a flash of lightning across the blade as it captures the light.
Kurosaki-san has used R2 High-Speed Powder Stainless steel in this line, which translations to wicked performance with a long-lasting edge, that is thin behind the edge, so they glide through vegetables on the cutting board.
This is also one of the few series we carry that comes in both the traditional Japanese handle, as well as a series of custom one-off western handles. Regardless of the size or shape, you are looking for, this is a knife line that you'll reach for every time you are in the kitchen.
Stainless steel is super handy because it doesn’t rust or stain easily like carbon steel. That said, remember it is stain-less, not stain-never. While it is much easier to care for than high-carbon steel, it does benefit from proper use: use it, wash it, dry it and put it away. Always avoid the dishwasher!
• Wood handles may dry out over time and exposure to water. Simply treat them with some food safe wax.
• 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 in a travel case.
• The 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, it should keep the edge from touching anything else.
