      Detailed Description
      Gyuto is the Japanese version of the classic western-style chef’s knife. Similar to the western chef’s knife, the Gyuto is a versatile, multi-purpose knife that is suitable for cutting the vast majority of meats, fishes, vegetables, fruits and herbs.

      Gyuto knife is best for chopping, slicing, mincing and dicing boneless meat, fish, vegetables, fruit and herbs. It is a true multi-tasker in the kitchen, and is often recommended as the best all-rounder Japanese knife.

      Blue (Aogami)#2 (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is made by adding Chromium and Tungsten / Wolfram to White Steel No.2. This results in increased toughness and the production of hard carbide molecules which improve edge retention. Many knife users have noted that while Blue Steel No.2 is very similar to White Steel No.2 in terms of edge sharpness, it has slightly superior edge retention

      Kurouchi (Black Finish) is a state in which the surface that has been blackened by quenching is sharpened only with the blade, leaving the black side unintentionally on the sides ( Mine & Hira ) other than the blade.

    A pleasure to work with

    After using this Gyuto for some 2 weeks, I'm still amazed about it's light weight (at least compared to my Deba) and perfect balance.
    Sharpness and cutting-behaviour are much superior than with my two Santokus of German production (Zwilling and Trident). Also this Gyuto seems to retain it's edge a lot longer.
    A pleasure to work with - which I cannot really say about my Deba, which has it's merits but still frightens me every time I use it.
    This universal kitchen-knife is highly recommended indeed - good value for money!
