Tojiro Damascus Set offers great versatility, featuring two multi-purpose knives that can cover pretty much every cutting-related challenge in the kitchen. This set contains two knives:
Gyuto is the ultimate multi-purpose knife, always ready for any cutting technique — be it chopping, slicing or rocking on the kitchen board. Due to its long blade, it is perfect for slicing larger pieces of meat and fish, as well as preparing vegetables.
Santoku, its shorter and slightly wider counterpart, is also an all-rounder that will handle every kitchen task with ease, but it really shines when it comes across veggies in need of chopping. It is also suitable for cutting smaller to medium-sized pieces of meat and fish.
The excellent VG-10 steel with the hardness of 61 HRC is clad into 62 layers of softer stainless steel with the Damascus pattern, making every knife a unique looking piece.
The blade extends into a traditional Japanese round Wa handle made of magnolia wood with a buffalo horn ferrule. The handle has an emphasized angle for a better grip, which makes it more suitable for right-handed users.
Dimensions (blade length x blade width x thickness / weight):
Gyuto: 210mm (8.3") x 44mm (1.7") x 2.0mm (0.08") / 135g (4.8 oz)
Santoku: 165mm (6.5") x 50mm (2") x 2.3mm (0.09") / 125g (4.4 oz)
