The blades of Tosa masters have long been famous for their very high quality and reliability and need no introduction. The region where these knives are produced is located on one of the southern islands of Japan (Shikoku Island) and is widely known for festivals of knifemakers and manufacturers of a wide variety of cutting tools. The interest of professionals in various industries using knives, collectors, as well as just lovers of this subject is caused by both the high skill of manufacturers and excellent product quality, and the fact that due to the high competition of blacksmiths in this region, it is possible to purchase exclusive samples of knives made from the best grades of steel ( such as, for example, Super Aogami) for a relatively low price. Moreover, Tosa sells both ready-to-use products (knives) and blades separately (knife manufacturers in Japan, as a rule, are extremely reluctant to do this), and the handle can be made at your discretion, it can be very convenient. The presented blade is made by the Tadayoshi forging company under the guidance of the master master Tadayoshi Saku. The Migaki Gyuto Tosa 180mm knife belongs to the Gyuto variety. In fact, the Gyuto is a multi-purpose knife, an analogue of the European chef's knife. Gyuto in translation means “cow sword”, which determines its priority purpose, like cutting large pieces of beef. Often, when choosing the "main" knife in the kitchen, home cooks, in case "size matters", prefer the traditional chef's knife. And it's a great choice as a staple knife in the kitchen as it can handle most basic cooking tasks. The Migaki Gyuto Tosa 180 blade is three-ply, double-edged, sharpened and ready to use. The Migaki Gyuto Tosa 180 blade has a gradual narrowing of the blade thickness, characteristic of a Japanese knife, both from the butt to the cutting edge and from the heel to the tip (very beautiful and correct narrowing along the butt from 2.5 to 1.5 mm), forming in orthogonal sections right isosceles triangles. Such a blade structure is called a double wedge - it is very laborious to implement, but guarantees an extremely aggressive and easy cut to the knife. The central, extremely thin and strong layer, hardened to a hardness of 61-63 HRC, is made of Aogami #1 steel, which has established itself as one of the best Japanese carbon blade steels. It naturally rusts - the Japanese traditionally do not use chromium steels, since carbon gives a much more aggressive cut and is more resistant to dulling. The outer layers are also made of steel, only softer, which prevents damage to the central core. Prolonged use of the knife will result in a slight darkening of the approach area around the cutting edge. This will not damage the knife or detract from its performance, but it will give a nice visual contrast with the outer layers, showing the seam lines - the uneven pattern of which will resemble the yakiba line, as on Japanese katanas. The blade of the Migaki Gyuto Tosa 180 has a fully polished bare surface, there is no blackening or Kurouchi coating, this gives the blade a very presentable appearance, but requires care of the blade in order to prevent corrosion damage. The Migaki Gyuto Tosa 180 blade is treated with a thin layer of waterproof varnish on top to eliminate the effects of corrosion during storage and transportation. During operation, this varnish can not be removed from the main part of the blade; it can be mechanically removed along the slopes in the region of the cutting edge during sharpening. After each use, the finished Migaki Gyuto Tosa 180 knife should be rinsed with water and wiped dry. It is better to store it on an open magnetic suspension. If you do not intend to use the knife for a long time, it is advisable to lubricate the rusting parts of the blade with oil. The Japanese use butt oil for this. You also need to take into account that the central layer of the blade is very thin and hard, and the sharpening angle is critically small. It is necessary to avoid strong shock loads on the cutting edge, contact of the knife with something very hard (bones, frozen foods, etc.). The blades are handmade, so there may be slight deviations from the specified dimensions and weight. Country of origin Japan. Type Migaki Gyuto Tosa 180. Master Tadayoshi Saku. Blade length 180 mm.
