     THE GYUTO

    Originally a Japanese interpretation of a French chef's knife, the Gyuto has come full circle now with European, American and Antipodean reinventions of this brilliant Japanese allrounder. The Doveton Fletcher Gyuto is tall, has a flat profile toward the heel for chopping, a large belly for rock cutting and a fine point for precision work. The three attributes that make the Gyuto the only knife you'll need in your kitchen.

    1095 CARBON STEEL

    Carbon steel is well known to take a sharper edge than most common stainless steels and is easy to sharpen. But like all non-stainless steel blades will oxidize (rust) when damp and exposed to acidic foods. So it’s highly advisable to wipe and dry your knife after use. I recommend storing it on a magnetic knife rack for all to see.  Always take care when cleaning and drying blade, a sharp edge will penetrate the skin long before you have time to react.

     

     

    HUON PINE

    Huon Pine is considered to be the “prince” of Tasmanian timbers and one of the earliest trees to evolve in Tasmania. Its richness of colour, fine grain and figure, such as birdseye, make it one of the world’s most desirable furniture and veneering timbers. It has been used in ship-building in Tasmania since 1815 due to its amazing durability and workability. A very slow growing tree, reaching up to 40 metres in height, Huon Pine is very much sought after by craftsmen and artisans because of its unique beauty. A truly timeless treasure.

     

    Tasmanian Blackwood  

    Boasting a variety of colours ranging from light golden-brown to deep brown (sometimes with a reddish tint) and occasionally showing black streaks, the timber radiates a subtle beauty that makes it irresistible to Tasmanian designers. Additional character results from the grain of the wood, which can be straight or wavy with a natural lustre.
