Gyuto - 210mm
Although the word gyuto has the rather romantic translation of "cow sword" it derives its shape from the classical European style of chef's knife. It is however so much more useful than slicing a few pounds of beef.
The size of the 210mm gyuto makes it comfortable to use for most people.
MCUSTA Zanmai Octagon Hammer Series
There are hammer finish knives and then there is the very refined hammer finish knife from Mcusta.
Subtle hammer marks are highly polished down to a "shinogi" that defines the start of the bevel. Starting the bevel in the middle has produced a slightly more obtuse angle that adds to the toughness of the blade without sacrificing too much sharpness.
The twisted red/brown pakkawood handle feels as comfortable as your favourite putter. It hides a full tang that is held in place with a mosaic pin.
Each Japanese knife is presented in a handmade kiri wood box.
Twisted Octagon Handle
The handles are a twist on the octagonal style of traditional Japanese knives with some inspiration from the golf course. In fact the way a chef grips a knife is very similar to a golf pro’s grip on a club. The result is surprisingly comfortable and high in aesthetics.
