Kikuichi Gyuto Gold Chef's Knife
The Kikuichi history of fine craftsmanship dates back to 12th century Japan, when an ancestor became a swordsmith for the emperor, marking each sword with the monarch’s chrysanthemum symbol. Today this proud tradition of metalwork continues with beautiful cutlery etched with this enduring emblem. Handcrafted in Japan, this gyuto knife (chef's knife) is ideal for extended chopping tasks without hand fatigue. Put it to work every day for all-purpose slicing, mincing and dicing.
