For those who prefer a longer chef knife, the gyuto remains well balanced and thanks to its thin blade it's very light and handles superbly in a range of jobs. It's great to look at too!
The gyuto is the Japanese equivalent of a chef's knife and there's not a lot it cannot do. Longer than a santoku the extra blade length means cutting meat is easier as it can be done in one pass. This shorter version of the gyuto is also at home chopping veg and performing precise work using the pointed tip. You could get away with having this as your only knife!
