The Miyabi Birchwood 240mm Gyuto. What a beaut. Between its suminagashi SG2 Powder stainless steel and light birchwood handle you don't need to compromise between good looks and horsepower.
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.
