Gesshin Stainless 240mm Western Deba

  • *NOTE: This item has recently undergone a refresh and is now a right-handed oriented knife with a thicker spine and heftier weight. Measurements and product photos will be updated soon.

    The Gesshin Stainless series was created in response to a need for high quality, affordable Japanese knives.  From line cooks to home chefs interested in getting into the world of Japanese knives, this series is for you.  It is easy to sharpen, takes a great edge, has good edge retention (significantly better than most German, Swiss, or French knives), and is easy to care for.  One of the things often missing from affordable knives is good fit and finish, so we hope to change that with this line. 

    The Gesshin Stainless western handle series recently got a refresh, with a slightly different profile and handle shape. This series is AUS-8 at about 58-59 HRC.
