A note about measurements: Handmade Japanese knives can vary in their dimensions, so these measurements are only an example.
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 the Blacksmith: Mutsumi Hinoura is the son of renowned blacksmith Tsukasa Hinoura. In his late thirties, he is already considered one of Japan’s most revered blacksmiths. For nearly 2 decades, he studied with his father and is the 4th generation to carry on the family craft. Mutsumi-san lives in Sanjo, in the Niigata region. This area is known for its handmade cutlery.
About the Knife Line: Mutsumi-san's Ajikataya series is deceptively simple at first but reveals his talent upon closer inspection. While the blade is quite hefty with a thick spine and body, it tapers down at the edge beautifully. This construction allows it to cut very smoothly without becoming too delicate. The octagon olive wood handle is an elegant highlight that elevates this knife to something truly special.
