Gyuto 250mm Multi Layered Nickel Cladding SheffCut Core


A beautiful workhorse, thin behind the edge to prevent wedging and splitting and yet ridged and tough at the spine. Subtly tapered and ground convex for great cutting performance. This blade is root vegetables nightmare and will absolutely cruise through large batches of vegetable prep. The knife will also comfortably deal with proteins without tearing.

A kind of rare release from Konstantinos, this knife features his low layer nickel Damascus cladding or as he calls it “multilayered cladding”. Etched for contrast and with a nickel diffusion layer, it’s a beautiful design. The Sheffcut core is a steel based on the Swedish 26c3 and is a low alloyed carbon steel with a great reputation for sharpness, toughness, and easy maintainability.

The knife features a Nouko Knives signature hidden tang western handle with stainless bolster and a body shaped in Ironwood. It’s a very classy design that feels satisfying in the hand regardless of your grip. The bolster features a museum fit and like every element on the knife it is crafted thoughtfully and with care. Beautiful work from this Sheffield based artisan craftsman.

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.
