Ranging from around 180mm to 270mm with some examples being as small as 160mm and some as large as 360mm the Gyuto is the Japanese knife shape and profile that most closely matches the Western "chef knife" that most people will use on a day to day basis and along with the santoku is one of the knife shapes we recommend as a first purchase.
Typically quite tall at the heel and pointed towards the tip for precision work the gyuto suits a sliding cutting style but is also efficient for those who rock chop too so it's an excellent choice for all round use and is an ideal knife style, size and shape to look at when starting your collection.
Cutting Edge Knives is a family run business established in 2011 and based in the picturesque town of Holmfirth, West Yorkshire. We love the history and craftsmanship that goes into making Japanese chef knives and accessories and the excitement and enjoyment you experience when using a truly sharp knife in the kitchen.
Over many years we've helped thousands of happy customers find their dream knife and look forward to helping you too.
