The Asian Precision knife collection by Messermeister provides the perfection of knife making with professional quality and great value. They are manufactured from high-carbon, high chromium 440A stanless steel alloy, tempered and flat-ground to a razor-sharp edge in the renowned cutlery capital of Seki, Japan. The resin-laminated paper, Pakkawood, handles are compression riveted to the full tang that includes both Eastern and Western blade shapes for any style of cooking.
The Messermeister 7.3/8" Gyuto Knife is the actual shape equivalent of the French Cooks or Chefs knife. It is generally lighter in weight than a traditional chefs knife because it has no real bolster and a thinner blade from spine to edge.
