A note about measurements: Handmade Japanese knives can vary in their dimensions, so these measurements are only an example.
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 Yu Kurosaki Senko - The Senko (translates as "Flash") knife line from Yu Kurosaki continues Kurosaki's flair for creating something new and fresh within his blacksmithing workshop with the distinctive hammer pattern that creates a flash of lightning across the blade as it captures the light.
Kurosaki-san has used R2 High-Speed Powder Stainless steel in this line, which translations to wicked performance with a long-lasting edge, that is thin behind the edge, so they glide through vegetables on the cutting board.
This is also one of the few series we carry that comes in both the traditional Japanese handle, as well as a series of custom one-off western handles. Regardless of the size or shape, you are looking for, this is a knife line that you'll reach for every time you are in the kitchen.
