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 Ryusen Fukakuryu - Ryusen Hamono was founded in 1948 as a knife sharpening company. They worked with companies like Takefu Special Steel as early as the 1970s to develop high-quality knives made with stainless steel, at a time when most other knife makers were struggling to produce decent stainless steel knives. Now, they have expanded their collection of knives not only having sharpness and longevity in mind but with a sleek modern design.
The Fukakuryu series brings stunning good looks and a 63-layer damascus blade forged from ATS-314 stainless steel. ATS-314 isn't an astromech droid, it's a high-end knife steel that balances superb sharpness and durability. The Canadian maple octagon handle is tapered toward the blade, creating the ultimate ergonomic grip. This thin, lightweight series handles like a surgical tool made for your kitchen.
