4.8 star rating 10 Reviews

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 and “gyuto” even translates to “cow sword”. If you want one knife to do it all, This is it. The longer blade typically gives the blade a forward balance that allows it to work for you. While the blade would ideally by slid forward or back while cutting, they are also great for folks that prefer to 'rock' their knife while cutting.

The 180mm Gyuto is great for those who prefer a smaller knife.

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.
