SHIKI 黒龍 Black Dragon Series Gyuto (180mm to 240mm, 3 sizes, Cocobolo Wood Handle)

Availability: Normally ships the same day

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.

To match the special matt finish of VG-10 Damascus blade, Mr. Masui decided to use beautiful natural wood texture of Cocobolo wood handle scales. Due to the restriction of importing the natural wood materials, Cocobolo wood material is becoming more distinctive. The ‘Cocobolo Wood handle scales and the seamlessly welded stainless steel bolster are nicely hand contoured, for perfect balance and comfortable grip. A gorgeous decorative Mosaic Pins add an elegant accent and contrast nicely with the unique wood handle.The handle and the seamless stainless steel bolsters are contoured by hand so that they are comfortable to grip and are nicely accented by a decorative mosaic pin and a black & gold spacer.

The special matt finish and silver-gray coloring of the VG-10 Nickel Damascus blade (HRC 60 to 61).

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.

    Not as good as expected

    Very pretty knife. Craftsmanship is praiseworthy. Not as sharp as I had believed a Japanese knife is supposed to be. My Sabatiers are sharper, and less prone to damage.

    Awesome knife!

    After having this knife for a few weeks, I find that it’s my new go-to, which is really surprising, because I have a blue steel #2 nakiri that I absolutely love. I’m a home cook with a vegetarian diet and this knife is perfect for all of my needs-- I even use it to cut through winter squash, allbeit carefully. It’s lightweight and gorgeous! Came extremely sharp. Shipping took about five days, which blew me away, considering the knife had to travel about 6,000 miles to get to my humble Minneapolis home. Definitely recommend.

    SHIKI Black Dragon Gyuto 210mm

    Package came before expected and in good condition. Constant correspondence throughout shipping and after arrival ensuring the product and service is satisfactory! The knife itself is awesome! Great edge retention and gorgeous! We cut hundreds of sushi rolls, sashimi, prep fish, etc., daily and this is our go-to knife. The 210mm is a very versatile size that can cut sashimi in one pass yet not too long to filet whole fresh fish. I only use the polish stone once or twice a week to get any lost edge back. Going to order another one so my wife and I quit fighting over who gets to use it. Great company, outstanding product!
