Tadafune Masatoshi Komakiri | 240mm Gyuto Knife (Vintage)

Sourced from a closed supplier in Seki city, this new old stock has been waiting 30 years for use.


The vintage design and shape of this Gyuto is something special, too difficult and too expensive to make in the modern day at anywhere near this price. With a wider and taller stance, it allows a thinner and sharper edge than usual, all whilst maintaining a thick enough spine to be durable.

 

There is evidence of vintage quenching techniques on the blade, made from SK high carbon steel. This steel is somewhat similar to Kigami Yellow, simple to sharpen and retains its sharp edge longer. It is also easier to maintain  than the pure carbon steels such as White or Blue steel. 

 

We may never see this same shaped knife at this price in future, unless more new old stock is discovered

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.
