Shigeki Tanaka VG10 Gyuto 180mm 3D HandleTanaka Knives
The handle on this 3D series Tanaka VG10 Gyuto is just gorgeous. It fits every contour of your hand and working with it over a long period you will find a noticeable reduction in fatigue. The Kobe Design University has spent countless hours working with Master Blacksmith Shigeki Tanaka to develop what is truly a piece of ergonomic artistry.
The handle is made out fine grain Birch Wood, which is coated with anti-slip wax. As you look at the 3D handle it seems to shimmer with black, brown and gold colors. It doesn’t just feel great, it looks great.
Tanaka Kitchen Knives have paired the 3D handle with high quality VG10 steel to produce a Gyuto, which we believe will hold a fantastic edge for a long time. Even under professional circumstances.
The fit and finish on this Gyuto is fantastic. The handle fastening has been nicely centered and is sealed and fastened cleanly. The balance on the blade is right where you want it, at the end of the handle. The knife is finished with hand chiseled kanji and comes in a custom made blue and silver box.
We think this is a high-quality knife at a very reasonable price and if you are a professional chef you will find that this is a great knife for the long prep hours.
