Takamura R2/SG2 Migaki 210mm Gyuto Knife

Takamura

Regular price £215.00 Sale

Takamura Hamono became a forerunner in developing the best quality stainless steel knives available and has since spent 60 years perfecting their blends. 

A Takamura knife is made to some of the highest standards and performance is second to none. Reputed as laser sharp performers, their knives' unmatched cutting performance is recognized not only throughout Japan, but by famous chefs worldwide

R2 steel is a hard stainless steel used by leading blacksmiths to provide some of the best sharpness and retention specifications that can be achieved from stainless steel. It makes for a superbly sharp knife that lasts a long time but can require a little more elbow grease when sharpening due to being a harder steel.

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.
