Description

Our handmade Yoshihiro Mizu Yaki Blue High Carbon Steel Kurouchi Gyuto Chefs knife are unparalleled in their performance. Mizu Yaki is a meticulous process of pure water quenching that draws out the hardness of refined steel while infusing it with enough resiliency to perform consistently in the most exacting of conditions. Exemplifying the most intricate techniques of forging, layering, and hammering, Kurouchi translates as Black Forged and is a traditional Japanese method of crafting high carbon knife. This unique style of forging offers an unpolished rustic finish.

Blue High Carbon Steel with a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 62-63 is prized for its high edge retention. It is sandwiched in between carbon steel in the traditional Warikomi style to add to its durability and ease sharpening. It takes a very high degree of skill to create knives of such exceptional performance and exquisite beauty with a steel of this caliber and is a testament to the extraordinary skill of the artisans.

The Gyuto is a Japanese chefs knife with a Western style curved blade that smoothly rocks back and forth and has an extended tip for quick chopping that can be used to cut meat, fish, and vegetables. Gyuto literally means beef sword and was initially used for cutting meat in Japan. The Gyuto is one of the most versatile and essential of all knives a cook can have. Preparing delicious meals starts with taking wholesome ingredients and using the best tools such as a high quality chefs knife to make every meal into something special. From dicing, slicing, and chopping fresh produce from a farmers market to carving a roast chicken straight from the oven, even the simplest tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional.
