This carbon steel knife—sharper than you can imagine—makes the best edge. This type of steel can rust, which is a hassle, but the blacksmith has clad the carbon steel with stainless steel that doesn’t rust. It’s the best of both worlds. That and it is as sexy as Jim Morrison in leather pants.
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.
