Gyuto Knife 210mm (8.2") #7395
The most essential knife for the kitchen which no chef can be without.
The gyutos meaning is “Cow sword” in Japan as gyu means “Beef” and to means “Sword” this is also known as a Chef’s knife or French knife. It is the one and first knife all chef’s/cooks needs in their kitchen. When buying your first gyuto you have to consider how and what will be built around your first knife as it will do the majority of the work in your kitchen.
Gyutos like chef’s knives go from 150mm up to 370mm which is massive, when starting out go for something in the range of 180mm to 210mm depending on the size of your hands. Later you can go for a larger chef’s knife like a 260mm to 280mm which can be used for larger jobs like cabbages, large dicing and meat cuts like beef sirloins and fillets.
The 33 layer Sakai Takayuki knives are one of our most popular knives we have and for many years they have been a chef’s favourite. This is due to the outstanding quality of knife and value for money. The handle is made from Mahogany wood in a western style, the blade is stainless steel with a VG10 core and holds a great edge for a very long time. The hammered 33 layer blade is called a moonlit due to it resembling a moonlit waves at sea.
