Shirasagi Shirogami Single Bevel

These stunning knives from Hatsukokoro offer something quite different to an double bevel gyuto. Single Bevel gyuto knives are quite traditional in Japan but not common internationally. They offer a thick and sturdy spine and that extra weight and strength gives them a super performance and versatility too.

This range is made for Hatsukokoro by a selected master Craftsman. This time by Tamura Toora of Myojin Hamono, and boy has he done a good job.

It's made using Shirogami, or White Steel #2. This is a carbon steel with HRC of 62/63 which makes it a very sharp knife with amazing edge retention, so you will need to sharpen it less often.
