$357 Sale Save

or 4 payments of $89 AUD w/ Afterpay

Crafted in Sakai, Japan by renowned blacksmiths Kikuchiyo and Gorobei, and sharpened by up and coming star Ren. This is a special knife and amazing value for such a high quality hand forged steel blade. Ren is the grandson of one of the best sharpeners that ever graced Japan's shore's, Morihiro San. These knives are being sold close to cost to help him gain experience.


These knives are extremely thin on last batches we have received. They will cut amazingly but require care to prevent chipping or warping of edge. Please take extra care as to how you cut, what you cut and where you cut (ie, soft cutting boards only).

Japanese Kitchen Knife | Gyuto (Chef Knife)

The Gyuto, or Japanese chef knife, is widely considered to be the most versatile kitchen knife for both professional chefs & home cooks alike.
With a variety of sizes and shapes available, generally the Gyuto is similar to western style chef knives in shape, however thinner, lighter, made of harder steel and retains a sharper edge. They consist of a flat mid-heel section for chopping, a curve towards the tip for rock cutting and a pointed tip for precision work.
If you are going to purchase just 1 good knife, the Gyuto (or perhaps the similar Santoku) would absolutely be the knife to choose.
