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.
Dchoi Designs has created a saya that is not only beautiful but also practical for everyday use. Rare Earth magnets hold the saya in place on the knife while never coming into contact with the steel, so you never have to worry about losing your saya pin again! Dchoi sayas are made to fit more universally so it provides a custom feeling fit, while allowing space for variation in both shape and size.
Depending on shape this should accommodate knives that are 55mm tall or shorter and 3mm wide spine or narrower.
