Japan, in long form the State of Japan, in Japanese Nihon or Nippon (日本) and Nihon-koku or Nippon-koku (日本国) respectively, is an island country in East Asia, located between the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Japan, east of China, South Korea and Russia, and north of Taiwan. Etymologically, the kanji (Chinese characters) that make up the name of Japan mean “country (国, kuni) of origin (本, hon) of the Sun (日, ni)”; thus Japan is referred to as the “Land of the Rising Sun”.

Traditional Japanese Professional Gyuto Kitchen Chefs Knife – Premium 8-inch High Carbon Stainless Steel Gyuto Sushi Knife with High Corrosion Resistance in a Single Bevel Chisel Edge Grind

  • HIGH QUALITY STAINLESS STEEL: Our 420HC stainless steel blades are heat treated for optimum hardness and edge retention while maintaining the ability to be sharpened to a razor edge. The steel used is perfect for kitchen specific tasks because of its corrosion resistance, preventing it from oxidizing with rust when it comes to contact with meat, fruits and vegetables. Our steel blades run the length of the knife and through the handle for a full-tang design.
  • SINGLE BEVEL KNIFE EDGE: Traditional Japanese knives in the hands of premier chefs are usually of a single bevel ground edge in order to give the most precise and sharp edge. Our blades are meticulously sharpened to a 15° edge on the right side while the other side remains flat. A conventional Compound edge is sharpened on both sides usually resulting in a 30° edge which is not as sharp. Our design gives you an incredibly sharp edge while you cut and a flat side helps to separate food slices.
  • FULL-TANG TRADITIONAL ROSEWOOD HANDLE: We wanted the handle of our knives to be able to remain in great working condition and maintain the test of time through use and ware. We thought of no other material to use in our handles than Rosewood. Praised for its natural ability to be strong and heavy while being able to maintain a polish. Using Rosewood and our full-tang knife design allows the blade to run throughout the Rosewood handle, giving you a balanced feel when manipulating your knife.
  • DESIGNED FOR CHEFS: Gyuto which translates to literally “beef-sword” is usually known in the professional western cuisine as the chef’s knife, this is the be-all-end-all knife for would be chefs. It’s versatility and length allows for proper use when cutting vegetables or long strokes for clean sashimi slices. Tackling tough meats such as pork belly or needing a sharp edge design for sinewy meats, this knife does it all with grace and professionalism.
  • SATISFACTION GUARANTEE: You satisfaction is our GUARANTEE. We are so confident that you will love your Traditional Japanese Professional Chef Knife that if you don’t feel the same way we do, you can contact our customer support team within 30 days of purchase and request a return, we will refund you the total amount paid for the knife.

Since 1945, Japan has formed an archipelago of 6,852 islands larger than 100 m2 , the four largest of which are Hokkaidō, Honshū, Shikoku and Kyūshū, which together account for 95% of the country’s land area. The archipelago stretches more than 3,000 kilometres. Most of the islands are mountainous, sometimes volcanic; for example, Japan’s highest peak, Mount Fuji (3,776 m), is a volcano (inactive since 1707). Japan is the eleventh most populous country in the world, with about 127 million people living on 377,975 km2 (337 inhab./km2 ), most of which is concentrated on the narrow coastal plains south of Honshū and north of Shikoku and Kyūshū, forming a virtually continuously urbanized area called the “Japanese Megacity” or “Taiheiyō Belt” (太平洋ベルト, Taiheiyō beruto, literally “Pacific Belt”). Greater Tokyo, which includes the capital Tokyo and several surrounding prefectures, is the world’s largest metropolitan area, with more than 35 million inhabitants. The city was the world’s leading financial centre in 1990.

Archaeological research shows that Japan was populated as early as the Upper Paleolithic period. The first written mentions of Japan are brief appearances in texts of Chinese history of the 1st century. The history of Japan is characterized by periods of great influence in the outside world followed by long periods of isolation. Since the adoption of its constitution in 1947, Japan has maintained a constitutional monarchy with an emperor and an elected parliament, the Diet.

Japan is the third largest economy in the world in terms of nominal GDP and fourth in terms of GDP at purchasing power parity. It is also the fourth largest exporter and sixth largest importer in the world. As a major player in international trade and a saving power, it has accumulated a net creditor position vis-à-vis the rest of the world of more than 325 trillion yen, placing it in first place ahead of China. It is a developed country with a very high standard of living (seventeenth highest HDI) and the longest life expectancy in the world according to UN estimates. But this idyllic picture should not hide important problems that weigh on the country’s future: Japan suffers from one of the lowest birth rates in the world, far below the generational renewal threshold. The country is currently in demographic decline. It is also the country with the highest gross public debt burden in the world, which in 2017 will amount to 240% of GDP.
