Tojiro Gyuto DP Hammered 210mm (8.3") is a new budget superstar from the hands Tojiro's blacksmiths. Tojiro's secret recipe of hardening VG-10 steel doesn't disappoint with this line of hammered kuro-uchi knives either. The knife is very sharp out-of-the-box and is ready to make some (precise) damage to the food you're about to prepare. Gyuto, or Chef's knife, is a multi-purpose Japanese kitchen knife that will shine with all kinds of chopping, slicing and rocking motions on the kitchen board - at home, as well as in a professional kitchen.

The VG-10 core, clad into a layer of softer stainless steel, is hardened to 61 HRC. Not a super hard knife, but this also means it is not a very sensitive blade, so you'll get a good ratio of edge retention and not needing to worry about chipping the blade very easily. The looks on Tojiro's new line is simply stunning - you'll marvel at the beautiful hammer dents on the blade coupled with a rustic looking kuro-uchi finish. Hammer dents also have a function, they help with the food release.

A durable stamina wood handle is used, allowing for an ergonomic and fatigue-less grip. It features a stainless bolster and three rivets for a secure handle fixation, reducing the possibility for cracks in the handle.
