Konosuke Sakai GS Rosewood Wa-gyuto - 210mm
Following on from the success of the HD2 range, Konosuke have released another racehorse thin range known as GS. Semi stainless steel is sandwiched between two layers of stainless steel ground down to a fine edge. An excellent blade for precision cutting but hard tasks like jointing a chicken should be avoided at all costs.
D-shaped rosewood handles match the light feel of the blade with easy control over the thin sharp edge. The edge of the GS series is thinner than the HD2.
Konosuke Sakai is creating sleek elegant designs producing a range of highly sought after chefs knives around the world.
- Being a super fine blade care should be taken not to chip the edge.
- Although the blade is ambidextrous the handle is designed for right handers only.
- As with many Sakai knives there is a small gap between the machi (notch) and the handle. This is the traditional method of setting Sakai blades.
- The actual length of the cutting edge is noted under "blade length" in the chart below.
