Gyuto's are a great all purpose knife. Inspired by the traditional western style chef's knife these knives can do it all. Ranging from 180 mm up to 270 mm these knives are great for chopping vegetables and herbs, slicing meat and anything else you can throw at it.
Sugimoto comes to us from Tokyo, Japan. Located in the infamous Tsukiji fish market, Sugimoto was one of the first Japanese knife makers to start making western style knives. They began producing western style knives right after WWII and have continued in their pursuit to bring their customers the best performing knives possible to this day.
The CM line from Sugimoto is made from a blend of Carbon and stainless steel so you get the edge retention of carbon and the ease a maintenance from the stainless. These knives are not completely stainless however and the user should be sure to wipe it down and keep it dry after use.
