Tojiro Gyuto Damascus in 240mm blade length will impress professional chefs and serious home cooks as a multi-purpose, low-maintenance and affordable chef's knife. The 240mm (9.5") is a standard size for a chef's knife, but most home users will need some time to adapt to a larger size. Once we get a feeling for the size, it's a very useful knife, especially when cutting larger vegetables, as well as larger steaks and fillets of 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.
