Hitohira Imojiya OKD 180mm Gyuto VG-1

$98.00

Made from mono steel VG1 stainless with rosewood handle. These knives have all the merits of a classic stainless mono steel gyuto but with better edge formation and easier sharpening than many. Plus an excellent cutting feel from the fine convex hamaguri grinds done at the workshop involved in the old Masakane production in Seki. 

This steel can be somewhat prone to chipping if mistreated but the payoff in ease of sharpening and cutting feel is worth it. These are a great take on the classic stainless western handled knife.
