About Suisin Inox Honyaki 'Wa' The Suisin Inox Honyaki knives represent a perfect hybrid of traditional Japanese and Western style knives. `Wa' stands for `Japanese,' which refers to the thin, honyaki tempered Swedish steel with a traditional Japanese yew handle and a water buffalo horn bolster. The blade's sharp 90:10 bevel makes it similar to a single sided edge, which is great for precision work. This line is the lightest knife in Korin's collection and is highly recommended for those interested in traditional Japanese knives, while retaining all the practicality and user-friendliness of Western style knives. About Suisin Suisin knives are crafted from the heart. From the initial design to the finished product, knives are repeatedly put to test in professional kitchens before they are released to the public. These knives are the unique by-product of a collaboration between the craftsmen and chefs. Suisin craftsmen are constantly challenging themselves to find new ways to ensure long edge retention and easy maintenance. Their goal is to provide chefs worldwide with the quality and careful craftsmanship that will allow them the precision and control to effortlessly create beautiful food. Purpose of Gyuto
The Gyuto is a versatile chef's knife. It can be used for cutting meat, fish and vegetables, making it suitable for preparing Western cuisine. Lightweight and thin, Japanese chef knives have a sharper blade and maintain their sharpness longer than most other chef knives.
