Manufactured by Sakoda Hamono, a workshop specializing in knives that inherit the 400-year-old traditional techniques of Tosa-uchi knives, the Gyutougata Japanese Knife is an all-purpose kitchen knife that exudes handcrafted quality. Its lightweight body and superb sharpness helps to reduce stress when cooking, while also making the texture of the cut of the ingredients quite palatable. What wholesalers actually look for in a kitchen knife is a product that is soft but does not chip. This is the professional viewpoint of excellent craftsmanship, but general customers tend to seek qualities that are more readily noticeable, like sharpness and lightness. This knife was developed in response to the voice of these general customers. In addition, quality inspections have been strictly performed on the product, and the quality of the knife is proven with data. Handmade by Tosa craftsmen who continue to strive for better quality by traveling around production areas and exchanging techniques, this is a supreme kitchen knife that can be handled by anyone.
