Yoshihiro Silver #3 Hon-Kasumi Wa-Gyuto Shitan Handle
The renowned "Goh Umanosuke Yoshihiro" from Sakai City, Osaka, is meticulously crafted with a core of Ginsan steel (Silver #3), forged with the traditional method of three-layered folding, and finally, hand-finished with traditional Hon-Kasumi to exhibit the delicate hazy and misty effect.
The term 'Hon-Kasumi' in this context refers to the mist-like, hazy finish on the blade's flat surface which is polished by hands.
Ginsan #3 steel excels in hardness, sharpness, and rust resistance, boasting an HRC of approximately 60–62. Its enduring sharpness makes it the sharpest among stainless steel materials.
This Japanese Gyuto features a standard Gyuto shape, and due to its double symmetrical bevel, it is not only favored by Western chefs but is also well-suited as a versatile knife for Japanese cuisine. Ideal for cutting meat, it can also be used for slicing vegetables, handling fish, and even assisting in preparing sashimi.
