This is our twist on the classic Gyuto, the Japanese version of the Western chef's knife. Employing full tang construction but slightly thinner than the classic Western chef's knife, it is a perfect multipurpose knife that excels for slicing vegetables and proteins as well as using the heal for chopping or push cutting. Featuring excellent geometry, full distal taper, and convex bevel for outstanding performance and food release. When using push and pull cuts, the Gyuto is perfect for use on a variety of proteins because of this thinner and sharper edge, as well as making extremely fine cuts due to the tip of the knife being thin.
The AEB-L stainless steel blade is a workhorse in the kitchen and can stand up to the most demanding jobs. AEB-L has great edge retention, durability, and toughness, and since the grain structure of the steel is so small, it is also very easy to sharpen. Please find out more info about AEB-L on our FAQ page.
