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.
Sugimori by Tojiro Atelier - These beautiful knives represent the sexier side of practicality. The durable stainless steel core is layered with softer Damascus steel to protect the cutting edge. Hand forged by Tomoo Matsumura-san in Tsubame city, the Sugimori series feels sharper than most stainless knives and is the perfect choice for a chef that desires a little more style. Tough, yet attractive, what more could you ask for in a knife? These knives are finished with a Western style Micarta handle. Micarta has an elegant wood-like appearance; they are a pleasure to hold as well as look at. The handle is fixed to the tang with three rivets for strength and durability- they are virtually indestructible. VG-10 is a steel designed to make knives; it brings sharpness, toughness and stain resistance together in the best combination possible. The result being a mind-blowingly sharp edge that stays sharp a crazy long time. Compared to other stainless steel, it is a dream to sharpen. You’ll never see your food discolour or have to pick up a rusty knife.
