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.

About Masashi Yamamoto - Masashi-san started his own workshop in 2013, after learning the family trade alongside his older brother Kazuomi at Yoshikane Hamono. Despite his young age, Masashi makes a beautifully polished and crazy sharp blade. The cool thing about him is that he works entirely by himself hand-making all of his blades and putting on the handles, the whole enchilada. Well, his coolness goes beyond his talent. He’s also a bit of a risk-taker, he likes to forge knives in his flip-flops as well as light cigarettes off glowing pieces of steel he’s working with. Bad. Ass.
