To distinguish these very special ‘SHIKI Black Dragon Series High-End Custom’ knife “ from other SHIKI brand knives, Master Craftsman Mr. Masui has selected to use only the very best materials and has spent even more time to ensure that every production process, particularly the detailed hand finishing, is performed faultlessly.

“California Buck Eye” resin-stabilized wood and arranged to have it specially imported from the U.S.A. This beautiful wood has a natural and dramatic figure that varies in color from an attractive warm cream through to a smokey-gray. The ‘California Buck Eye’ handle scales and the seamlessly welded stainless steel bolster are nicely hand contoured, for perfect balance and comfortable grip. Three gorgeous decorative Mosaic Pins add an elegant accent and contrast nicely with the unique wood handle.

The special matt finish and silver-gray coloring of the VG-10 Nickel Damascus blade (HRC 60 to 61) is also specially developed to beautifully echo the figure and color of the ‘California Buck Eye’ handle scales.

The Gyuto is the Japanese version of the classic Western Chef’s knife. It can be used with a variety of different cutting techniques to achieve a wide range of kitchen tasks and is suitable for cutting the vast majority of meats, fish, vegetables and fruits. The Gyuto is true multi-purpose knife.

This knife comes with 50/50 double bevel edge geometry for both right and left handed use.

For your information, Japanese Kitchen knives are generally designed for right hand use with a slightly thicker and rounded grinding on the right side blade and a less rounded (almost straight flat) grinding on the left side blade. However, both right and left hander can use the knives that have double bevel edge sharpened 50/50 without problems. 

We believe quality and performance of Japanese knives are best in the world and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and spirits from your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knives can be your special cooking partner for long time.
