Ittetsu Tsuchime Gyuto - 240mm SLD

Ittetsu means “work hard” and is considered a very high compliment in Japan. These knives are meant to be used. With a core of SLD steel and stainless cladding, they are easy to maintain, they hold an edge for a long time, and they are meant for daily use. They have a little heft to them, with awesome heel height that gives confidence when using them. These are constructed in Sanjo City by a shop that does a lot of OEM work for some of the better known Japanese brands like Masamoto, Tadafusa and Kiya. SLD steel by Hitachi is an excellent steel for kitchen knives. The main features of the steel are hard, tough, and strong against wearing.
