Ohishi SLD 180 Gyuto
Ohishi knives are made in Sanjo, Niigata. These knives offer very strict quality, as well as performance at a reasonable price.
The blade of the knife is SLD steel, which is semi-stainless steel, with stainless cheeks (Sanmai). SLD has a pleasant biting blade feel that works well on the skins of fruits and vegetables, e.g. The blade tapers towards the tip, but is thicker at the neck in typical Sanjo style.
The stainless cheeks of the knife have a beautiful hammer finish (Tsuchime), which helps in removing food and is also very stylish. A really good agile Gyuto/Petty for line work or otherwise just one of the best planers anywhere. One of our most popular knives.
