Traditionally, the GL series knives have been used in conjunction with the Master Kuo G series Taiwan Tuna Knives to make long lateral cuts, and/or cross cuts across the spine. It is kin to a Japanese maguro bocho.

This blade is stainless steel cladding with a Japanese Carbon steel core, and a stainless steel handle. Hardness is RC 60-61, and comes with a custom made leather sheath. The GL series is available in 7 lengths - 240mm (9.5"), 270mm (10.5"), 300mm (12"), 340mm (13"), 360mm (14"), 390mm (15.5"), and 500mm (20").

Knife care: Keep clean with warm water and soap. Towel dry immediately. Do not put into dishwasher. Stainless clad outer steel will not rust, but exposed SK5 core edge steel can show signs of surface rust over time. Most surface rust can be removed by sharpening the edge.

Master Kuo knives are some of the sharpest factory sharp knives we've ever seen, but they are capable of even more after our professional sharpening services. We recommend the 2000 and 5000 Grit services for this knife.
