Miki M303 Kigami Gyuto (chef's knife), 210 mm
Miki M303 Kigami chef knife,
This Japanese chef's knife is forged from Japanese Kigami carbon steel (non-stainless) with riveted bolster. This double-sided sharpened knife is hand-forged by Miki Hamono's forge. The blade is very thin and sharpened manually and has no thickening which makes grinding very easy. A Gyuto is the Japanese equivalent of the western "chef's knife". Due to its long slender shape, this knife is ideal for cutting meat, fish and vegetables, this knife is ideal for "rocking" cutting and is less suitable for embossing.
This knife can also be used perfectly for slicing sashimi or for slicing roasted meat.
