The gyuto - the Japanese answer to the Western chef knife - comfortably handles most cutting tasks and techniques.
Slicing, rock chopping, dicing, julienne, brunoise... Great food starts with precise cutting. The acute 15 degree edge ensures that you never bruise delicate ingredients and always preserve their freshness.
440C has more than 2x the carbon content than other premium steels. The blade, heat treated to HRC 59 hardness, keeps its razor-sharp edge cut after cut.
The perfect weight distribution and hand-polished pakkawood handle have been designed for professionals to cut effortlessly through the toughest food without compromising on comfort.
