A perfect all rounder and a well balanced and finished knife with a finish and edge retention that will serve you for years.
Gyuto means 'cow sword' in Japanese and is for tackling any job whether it be filleting or slicing raw meat (no bones though!), fish and vegetables.
Being narrower than the Santoku it is a great choice if you primarily want to cut meat as with its narrower blade there is less surface area for the food (especially fatty oily meat) to stick to.

What you get with the knife
A gold or grain patterned card storage box with black inlay and on the front - a photo of Teruyasu Fujiwara, as he makes every single knife you get to see the man himself.
You'll also get our normal knife care guide card and a couple of plasters just in case you have any little accidents!
All our knives also come with free blue plasters just in case you're not ready for the sharpness! If you intend to use your knives regularly then we don't advise you to use the boxes for day to day storage, get a magnetic knife rack instead.
