Gyuto's are a great all purpose knife. Inspired by the traditional western style chef's knife these knives can do it all. This particular Gyuto has a more curved profile than is typical of most gyuto's making it a great option for those who prefer to use a rocking motion when cutting.
Forged by a group of blacksmiths working out of Sanjo City, Japan. Fujimoto Nashiji are a great introduction to Japanese knives, or for the chef on a budget. Clad or sandwiched between two pieces of stainless steel the core Aogomi (blue) #2 steel provides some of the best edge retention you can find. Made from burnt chestnut with a plastic ferrule we at the shop have no problem with the handle, it's what you give up to get such great value for you money however. This knife is slightly blade heavy.
