I have the protoype of this knife and I know I would have been a happier chef if I’d had it back in the day, toiling in kitchens. I like to recommend it to superstar chefs, because being mirror polished, it’s a great knife for TV as the camera guy will have a terrible time with the reflections. What fun!
About the Shape Inspired by the profile of a traditional European chef knife, Gyutos are a multi purpose knife with a slight meat cutting bias. “Gyuto” translates to “cow sword.” If you want one knife to do it all, This is it. Starting at 180mm, Gyutos can reach the ridiculously long (and awesome) 370mm. For the at-home or professional cook, we recommend a Gyuto which measures between 210mm and 270mm long.
