A perfect all rounder and a well balanced and finished knife with a finish and edge retention that will serve you for years.
The smallest of the three Gyutos we sell in this range, the tip gets slightly thinner at the tip than the larger Gyutos. 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.
Fujiwara San combines the incredible edge-taking capabilities of his own choice of Super Blue steel Chigusa-kou with a layer of stainless steel to create a knife that is truly a privilege to own.
