If you claim the title of amateur chef, you know the importance of investing in the right tools to support your cooking abilities. First and foremost, on that list would be having high-quality knives, such as a Gyuto chef’s knife, a Santoku, a Nakiri or one of the many other Japanese knife types.
Santoku knives have quickly become a favorite of chefs and home cooks around the world. Ideal not just for cutting but also chopping, mincing, and dicing. The Santoku knife offers all-in-one versatility in a long-lasting package.
Similar to a chef's knife, the Santoku knife tends to be a little shorter than the standard Gyuto and is focused on smaller and more specific tasks, such as thinly slicing vegetables for a fancy garnish or dicing smaller portions for a dish.
The gyuto knife is the Japanese version of the traditional chef's knife. Known for its versatility, durability, and quality, this artisan knife has continued to grow in popularity. Find out all you should know about the gyuto knife in this informative blog from Hasu-Seizo.
Are you thinking about adding a Nakiri knife to your kitchen? This Japanese knife is known for its superior chopping and cutting capabilities. We explore its history and many uses to help you decide whether the Nakiri knife is right for you.
Wondering what the differences are between a Japanese kitchen knife made out of Shirogami or Aogami 1 vs 2? We delve into the details to help you make the best decision possible. When looking at traditional Japanese cooking knives many of them are made out of these high carbon steel variants.
High carbon steel can be sharpened to a razor-sharp edge and maintain that edge for generally a very long time. However, the higher the carbon content the more brittle a knife becomes. Additionally, as the name suggest, stainless steel is much easier to maintain than high carbon steel. High carbon steel knives need to be wiped down right after use.
