Hitohira Togashi Yohei Mizu Honyaki | 240mm Gyuto Knife (Aogami) - #056

The pinnacle of performance and craftsmanship, this Aogami Mizu-Honyaki knife is forged by legendary smith Togashi San and sharpened by one of our favourite sharpeners, Yohei San. This knife has been discounted due to the hamon but there is good banding. Blue honyaki are rare and getting harder to secure, pricing is going up 20-30% next year on blue honyaki.

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.
