Captivate with boundless versatility. To chop, dice, and slice with maximum precision and minimal effort, feel the| power of house-made san mai steel in our Gyuto LS185 collaboration with London-based Blenheim Forge. The workhorse of every kitchen, this handcrafted Eastern-style chef knife is fitted with an octagonal handle in fumed oak with brass bolster. Made one at a time, each blade bears a unique finish.
Translated literally, gyuto means “beef knife,” the word to describe a chef’s knife in Japanese. Made using traditional techniques and tools, British artisans Jon Warshawsky, James Ross-Harris and Richard Warner of Blenheim Forge shape each blade by hand, first with hammer and anvil, and then on water-cooled stone wheels, and fit each handle and bolster one by one. Made in-house, the steel is forged exclusively for LS626 knives to create a finished product with a hard, sharp and thin edge for longevity and cutting pleasure. Working from their shop in Peckham, South London, situated beneath a railway arch in an area now popular with artists and craftspeople, the Blenheim Forge team specializes in custom, house-made san mai steels and culinary tools modeled after Japanese blade shapes and production methods.
