Kotai Gyuto // 8" Chef Knife // Hammered Blade
Expertly handcrafted, perfectly balanced, and ultra durable, KOTAI bridges the gap between Eastern and Western knife making to bring the best of both worlds into a single, hybrid design.
The Gyuto is the Japanese answer to the Western chef knife, and comfortably handles most cutting tasks and techniques. this “Tsuchime” version of the KOTAI Gyuto features a hand-hammered blade. Aesthetically appealing and functional, the 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.
This KOTAI knife feature a razor-sharp Japanese 440C high-carbon steel blade, which is rust-resistant and heat treated to 59 hardness to preserve its sharp edge cut after cut. Finished with an acute 15 degree blade edge and hand-polished pakkawood handles, these professional-quality knives make it effortless to cut through even the toughest food without compromising on comfort.
