Japanese Knife Techniques - Grips, Chops, other stuff?

kartik36 | Mar 10, 201512:36 PM


I just bought my first professional knife. And I decided to go with a Japanese Gyuto Tojiro DP.

I have attended a few knife skills classes. Most of them have focussed on the pinch grip and rocking action.

I would appreciate advice, tips & tricks regarding using a Japanese Gyuto. I read that its prone to chipping and must be used properly.


P.S. - Buying a japanese knife as a noob is probably an over ambitious move but I think i am going to enjoy learning and using it as I go... :)
