Gyuto 255mm Denty Kurouchi Lilac & Titanium


This product is unavailable

With blackout Titanium endcaps and a stunning piece of natural lilac for the handle this Kamon Gyuto is drawn back, understated and yet it still features all the sophistication and most importantly the performance of a classic Kamon forged blade. The heirloom series from Benjamin Kamon is designed for those who are looking for something that is less, but still want the best.

Think Omega or IWC instead of Rolex, subtle in style, but still absolute precision.

At the business end you will find a classic “Denty” textured blade forged in 1.2519 tungsten alloyed German tool steel, precision ground for the absolute best in class performance, perfectly balanced. An absolute delight on the cutting board.

This is subtle yet beautiful cutting tool, uncompromising in every way.

Product Care:

Cleaning: Clean by hand with warm water. Avoid wetting the handle when possible. 

Sharpening: We advise using whetstones to sharpen your knives and a honing rod or steel to maintain the burr between sharpening sessions. 

Reactive Steels: Reactive steels like Aogami Super, Apex Ultra or one of the many premium reactive German and Swedish steels are susceptible to rust if not properly cared for. In this case we advise that you keep the knife dry between uses and when storing the knife for longer periods wiping the knife blade with Tsubaki oil or another food safe oil is a wise choice. This will not stop a patina forming on the blade, but it will stop rust. A patina can be a beautiful personal feature on your knife and helps to stop rust forming. So, dry your knife regularly between uses, store in a dry place and apply some Tsubaki oil from time to time when storing for long periods.

Handle Care: If you have a knife with a non-stabilised wooden handle, you can apply Tsubaki oil or another food safe oil to your handle from time to time. Food safe wax can be applied to both stabilised and no-stabilised wooden handles. Never apply hot wax or oil as you risk warping or damaging the handle.
