Ohishi Ginsan Nashiji Gyuto (Chef/Cook), 180mm
The 180mm Ginsan series Gyuto (Chef/Cook) Japanese Kitchen knife is another perfect example of the Blacksmiths' skill. Seeing it in the red felt packing makes the Nashiji finish really stand out and you know you are looking at a kitchen knife that will not let you down
The 180mm blade is perfect for smaller kitchens or for those that feel more comfortable with the shorter blade. Using this wonderful knife to prep the ingredients for a Pork Savory mince made the job so easy. From the perfect balance, the out-of-the-box sharpness, and the comfortable weight of the kitchen knife this knife is definitely one I would recommend.
This Kitchen knife like the others in the Ginsan Range from Ohishi definitely has its place in a Chefs knife roll or on the knife rack in a busy households kitchen.
