This knife is known for its great durability and edge holding of Swedish Gold steel making this one a real workhorse. The GS series is loved by professional chefs for its ability to stand up to the rigors of real kitchen work. This is one of our heavier lines and is preferred by many chefs who want the quality of a Japanese knife with the weight and design of a European blade (like Wusthof, but cooler). The construction and quality of the steel in the blade gives this knife the super power ability to stay razor sharp through maximum daily use.
