The S1 Gyuto knife is an extraordinary kitchen knife that combines traditional Japanese knife-making with modern design cues. Crafted by Hinoki, a knife-making company comprised of third-generation master bladesmiths, the S1 Gyuto features classical practices that find heritage in traditional sword-making. The blade is made from pure black Japanese steel, and was created through a process that involves 131 distinct production steps. The process of making the blade and the carbon steel used in it ensures the edge retention of the blade, meaning it will stay sharp for longer periods of time.
The S1 Gyuto knife currently comes in three different handle variants, all of which are meant to complement the beautifully dark blade. Charred Walnut, American Walnut and European Oak are all available options for the handle. The handle shape falls somewhere in between a western style and a Japanese octagonal handle. This fusion of handle shapes brings an amazing level of comfort to the knife and makes prolonged cutting a breeze.
