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.

Developed by Takefu Special Steel, Super Gold 2 (SG2) is a premium powdered tool steel alloy specifically engineered for crafting high-quality blades. Renowned for its exceptional performance and durability, SG2 has earned its reputation as one of the most sought-after high-end powder steels in the blade-making community. With the ability to be heat-treated to an impressive hardness of up to 64 HRC (Rockwell hardness scale), SG2 blades exhibit outstanding edge retention and wear resistance. Interestingly, there is a steel known as R2, produced by Kobelco Steel, which is widely believed to be identical to SG2 in composition and properties.

Due to their indistinguishable characteristics, these steels are often referred to interchangeably as SG2/R2, acknowledging their shared origin and performance attributes. Blades made from SG2 (or R2) steel have gained considerable popularity among both professional chefs and knife enthusiasts for their exceptional cutting performance and long-lasting edge sharpness.
