These stunning knives from Hatsukokoro are some of the most beautiful we have on offer. With their combination of a dark, almost matt finish, down through the damascus layers to a superb shine against the cutting edge, the appearance is influenced by lightning.

Aside from beauty, the performance is awesome too. Blue 2 steel is used in this range which is a superb performing steel favoured in Japanese knife manufacture. As a carbon steel it can corrode, so a little extra maintenance to keep it clean and dry is required, but for that small additional effort you unlock the true potential of the incredible sharpness of this steel. Not only can Blue 2 achieve a sharp edge, but it retains that sharpness superbly while also being easy to sharpen when needed.

The Gyuto is a multi-purpose, large bladed knife that you can use for almost everything. Typically these are light strong knives which range from 180mm to 240mm normally (although sometimes longer), with 210mm being the most common and popular size due to it's sweet spot of length for larger tasks but excellent agility. Longer knives tend to be used more for high volume tasks in professional kitchens where 240mm and even 270mm are popular. 180mm is popular for smaller home kitchen tasks too.

The blade profile is great for cutting in a rocking type motion. If you are looking for one knife, this is the most versatile.
