Blade Type

The Gyuto knife, a cornerstone of Japanese culinary tradition, is a versatile, all-purpose chef's knife. Its name, translating to "beef sword," reflects its proficiency in slicing meat and in more modern times vegetables. However, its slightly curved blade excels in chopping, dicing, and mincing, making it indispensable in any kitchen.

Steel Type

Japanese Ginsan steel, also known as Silver-3 or G3, is an underrated high-grade semi-stainless steel loved by many for being in the ‘goldilocks zone’ of knife steels. It holds a very respectable edge, but is effortless to sharpen. It is considered the semi-stainless version of White 2. It is the knife steel of choice for many home cooks and professional chefs alike.

Recommended Maintenance

Store it in a dry environment using magnetic strips, knife rolls, or sayas. Avoid hitting hard or frozen objects and twisting the blade while cutting. These knives are not dishwasher safe. Clean with hot water and a soft cloth, and dry immediately after use to prevent rust spots on the high carbon steel. For more information please read the blog below.
