Description

The Matsubara Tsuchime Gyuto 240mm is a large Japanese all-purpose chef’s knife. Similar to a Western chef’s knife, a gyuto has a thinner blade which holds a sharper edge. Suitable for all types of veggies, meats, and fish, a gyuto is best utilized with a downward slice, versus any chopping or aggressive cuts. Lightweight and extremely sharp, it is versatile, comfortable, and a pleasure to use.

Completely handcrafted by 4th generation blacksmith Katsuto Tanaka, this knife is forged with a cutting core of Aogami #2 Carbon Steel that features a beautiful and rustic hammered Tsuchime stainless steel outer surface for a total of 3 layers. The blades are very thinly ground and deliver effortless cutting performance for both right and left-handed users. The octagonal handles are made with Rosewood and feature a black pakkawood ferrule.

Caring for your handmade knife:

  • Always hand wash and thoroughly hand-dry your knife
  • Wipe your knife down while you’re cooking, especially after cutting acidic foods
  • Lightly coat your knife with mineral oil before storing
  • Never store your knife wet, or allow it to soak in water
  • Never place knife in a dishwasher
  • Do not cut bones, frozen products, or pits
  • Do not twist, chop, hit, or pry with your knife. Always use in a locomotive slicing motion
  • Do not use a marble or glass cutting board. Always use a soft cutting board, such as wood  

Due to the nature of handcrafting and traditional blacksmithing, each knife is unique and may have some cosmetic distortion or irregularities. This is expected and normal. Because these knives are handcrafted, they do not qualify for warranty services.
