8" Gyuto Chef Knife - Stabilised Blue Maple Burl and Micarta
The Gyuto - a western-inspired Japanese blade that can do anything in the kitchen. With a generous, rounded handle, a rounded spine and finger guard/choil - this knife can be used all day. This functional kitchen tool has brass pins, a mosaic pin and a tough-as-nails black Micarta bolster up front with a carbon-fibre pin. The main part of the handle is in beautifully burled Maple wood that has been stabilized and dyed in-house. The stabilizing process impregnates the wood with an extremely durable resin - this makes the wood virtually impervious warping or cracking, water resistant and a lot more hard-wearing than natural wood. This knife has a fine geometry from spine to edge and is sharpened to 17 degrees at the edge. From light veggie prep and slicing meat to heavier work like preparing butternut, this all rounder will serve you well. The perfect chef's knife!
