Umai splendid gyutou chef’s knife. This medium length, thin-bladed Japanese knife is a great all-purpose kitchen knife. Two-sided hollow-cut blade. An excellent all purpose knife. Clean with water and always wipe blade dry thoroughly with a soft cloth. Has a 7.75-inch stainless steel blade with a beautiful dimpled and polished finish and a stained wood handle. The dimpling is not only decorative, but adds air space between the blade and the food which helps the food release and not stick to the blade. 13 inches overall length. Made in Japan.
