Collection: Gyuto Japanese Knives (Chefs Knife)

The Gyuto, or Japanese chef knife, is a multipurpose knife and is considered to be one of the most versatile Japanese knives for chefs and home cooks. A Gyuto can be used to do a large range of tasks, such as slicing, dicing, and mincing. The Gyuto knife is typically between 210 - 270mm in length and its blades are usually made from carbon steel or stainless.

The different sizes will generally reflect their use, for example, a 180mm size is usually for home use or smaller spaces, while 210mm is the most popular size of knife for cooks of all experience levels, and the larger sizes of 240-270mm are usually used by professional chefs or home cooks with serious knife skills.

The Gyuto is similar in shape to Western style chef knives and comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. Where the Gyuto differs from Western chef knives is in it's make, as they are (generally) thinner, lighter, made of harder steel, and retains a sharper edge as a result. If you are looking for one good knife that can do most jobs and will be a 'work horse' in the kitchen, the Gyuto is one of the best options available from the range of Japanese knives available.
