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 Masakage Mizu -Dubbed Mizu (water), these blades have a blue/black kurouchi finish giving the impression of cold, deep water. Paired with an oval cherry handle and a not too fancy plastic collar, these knives are great for the cook that wants performance without blowing their budget. Aogami (blue) carbon is my kind of steel- super easy to sharpen, takes a brilliantly sharp edge, cuts like silk and patinas beautifully. Since the blade is not stainless it requires a lot of care, making it great for anyone who takes careful care of their knives.
