An excellent chef knife with great edge retention  

 

SHAPE: Gyuto. Literally translates as "cow sword", this is Japan's answer to the western chef knife. 

STEEL: SG2 or R2. These are modern powder steels and as the name suggested are formed from mixture of powdered elements heated and pressed together. This allows for very precise recipes to be followed. The steels themselves have the ability to be hardened to above 65 on the Rockwell scale giving them excellent edge retention. This does come at a slight cost in that them can be slightly difficult to sharpen.

FINISH: Damascus or Suminigashi

HANDLE: Western micarta with mosaic pin  

LENGTH: 210mm in length.

MAKER: Ohishi - Niigata, Japan

BEST FOR: Western handle lovers looking for a powder steel  

 

SAUNDERS SAYS: "I’m really falling in love with SG2. It’s not one of the crazy hard to sharpen steels but does have crazy edge retention."
