Gyuto 210mm Matsubara Blue #2 - Tsuchime finished, walnut handle
The knife for all tasks - Gyuto 210mm with Tsuchime Finish.
This hang-forged gyuto with 210mm blade length from Matsubara has a special surface finish called Tsuchime finish. This surface finish of the blade is very distinctive and makes the knife so special. The sheath steel of this blade is hammered with a special anvil developed by Mr. Tanaka, which creates this special surface texture. In addition to the great look, this surface also has the benefit that the unevenness created allows the cut material to detach well from the knife. The core of the blade is made of the very cutting Blue #2 steel with a hardness of about 62 HRC. A layer of softer stainless steel is welded around the blade core using the San Mai method. The softer stainless steel on the blade blade not only protects the inner steel core, but also gives the blade a degree of flexibility.
This kitchen knife can be used for the vast majority of applications and is the equivalent of the western chef's knife. The blade runs in a large radius to the tip, allowing the knife to roll optimally when cutting. The blade area close to the handle is also suitable for chopping the food, as the blade can rest flat on the cutting board in this area. Coarse cutting work, e.g. of meat or large vegetables, is just as possible as fine cutting of fish, onions and chopping of herbs.
Matsubara perfectly understands how to combine visual appeal with sophisticated craftsmanship and perfect functionality.
