JIKKO Tsuchime Finish VG10 Damascus Steel Gyuto

$3,100

Description

Crafted by JIKKO in Sakai City, Osaka, Japan, the knife combines Sakai's 600 years of forging tradition with the ancient art of Damascus folding. It features a folded Damascus stainless steel, with a corrosion-resistant VG10 core.

The blade is manually hammered to create a beautiful Tsuchime pattern, which aids in food release during cutting. The blade edge is polished with a bright finish, showcasing the exquisite Damascus folding pattern.

In addition to being a favorite among Western chefs, the Gyuto is also highly versatile for Japanese cuisine. It is well-suited for cutting meat, slicing vegetables, handling fish, and even assisting in preparing sashimi.

For home use, a Gyuto with a blade length of 18cm to 21cm is the most suitable choice. Generally, it is advised that Gyuto knives designed exclusively for Western chefs should ideally have a length of around 24cm.

Handle: Mahogany wood Western-style handle
This product comes with a Magnolia wood Saya.

How to Maintain Stainless Steel Knives

After use, simply wipe the knives dry to remove any moisture. Do not use a dishwasher to clean your knives. If you plan not to use the knives for an extended period, it's advisable to apply a thin layer of protective oil.

Ensure you use the knives correctly, as they are designed for specific functions such as slicing, chopping, or handling frozen foods. Avoid using them beyond their intended purpose, as this can lead to damage.
