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 Tojiro: Tojiro is a knife-making giant in Japan. While they have a small factory that produces incredible hand-forged knives, their true specialty is factory-made knives. In Japan, “factory-made” isn’t what most people think. While the blades are rolled and stamped, much of the work is done by hand including grinding and finishing steps. Tojiro primarily works with VG-10, a stainless steel loved for its ease of sharpening and easy maintenance, but they also use VS2, SK85 and others.
