Hybrid between a Japanese and a German blade profile, the slightly curved belly allows a rocking motion for effortless chopping and mincing while the lowered tip makes precision work easier.
Besides its aesthetic appeal, the “Tsuchime” (槌目) (hammered) pattern creates tiny pockets of air between the blade and the food being cut. This ancestral Japanese method reduces drag, thus preventing food from sticking to the blade.
Its 1.8 mm thin blade allows precise and sharp cuts, never crushing even the most delicate food to preserve their full flavor.
Forged with Japanese 440C high-carbon stainless steel, the KOTAI Gyuto's blade will stay sharp up to 10 times longer than other knives. 440C combines a high carbon content for hardness and edge retention with the optimal amount of chromium for corrosion resistance.
Hidden full tang - KOTAI blades extend all the way to the bottom of the handle - for superior durability and balance.
