Founded more than 100 years ago in 1919 by Tokie Hokiyama in Tosa – Shikoku Island – Hokiyama cutlery stands on a triangle of values:
Tradition, Innovation and practicality.
They preserve the original clad forging method cultivated over 800 years of Tosa cutlery history with craftsman spirit and ambitions of making further innovations for the future. While making traditional knives, they keep on searching up-to-date technologies, materials and manufacturing process, and always trying to develop more refined products aiming at further evolution.
The Bokusui Swirl Gyuto is made of AUS-8 stainless steel and is an amazing, unique looking knife for the Damascus lovers. Very thin and light will fly through produce.
Meaning “Beef knife” in Japanese, the Gyuto is the most common and basic of all knives, the Japanese version of the classic western Chef’s knife. It is used as a multi-purpose knife, suitable for meat, fish, vegetables and more. Can be used with almost all different cutting techniques. The 210mm size is the most common, used both by professional and home cooks.
