A quality chef’s knife is one of the best investments you’ll ever make. Not only will it last you a lifetime of slicing and dicing, but it will do so while keeping your digits safe. When you can add a little beauty into the mix, well, that’s not bad at all. Such is the case with the S1 Gyuto Chefs Knife from Hinoki. Each customizable knife is sculpted by hand through a process that includes 131 steps. It’s a prime example of Japanese craftsmanship and the attention to detail you’d expect from any product from the Land of the Rising Sun. That painstaking process results in an insanely sharp blade that holds its edge for a good amount of time. Hinoki trusts the purest form of carbon, White Steel #1, to craft knives that are the kitchen equivalents of Japanese swords. Want a Japanese sword to dice onions? Here you go.
