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 SG2, also known as R2 steel, is a high-end, powdered metallurgy stainless steel and one of the finest knife-making steels available in Japan. It is a favourite of many for its exceptional hardness and edge retention. Its fine, uniform grain structure enables razor-sharp edges, all the while holding an edge for much longer than Carbon steel knives, without needing to be concerned about rust appearing.

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.

Absolutely incredible knife... my favourite!

Love this knife. Razor sharp out of the box, keeps a keen edge with an occassional stropping.

Not sure why others have complained about the choil and spine - I use a pinch grip and its perfectly comfortable.

Very good geometry but the only down side is the choil and spine aren't rounded at all and are sharp but if you don't use a pinch grip very very good knife. Side note came very sharp and easily shaves hair and passes through food like its not there
