About Konosuke GS+
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.
Octagonal chestnut 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 create sleek elegant designs highly sought after around the world.
- Being a super fine blade care should be taken not to chip the edge.
- As with many Japanese knives there is a small gap between the machi (notch) and the handle. This is the traditional method of setting Sakai blades.
- The kurouchi finish will be a mix of grey tones that will lighten over time.
- The actual length of the cutting edge is noted under "blade length" in the chart below.
