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.
Since 1650, Yoshimitsu Hamono has been hand forging blades out of their shop in Shimabara City. They use the highly regarded Aogomi Super steel to make their knives which contributes to amazing edge retention. These knives are pretty average in terms of their thickness at the spine but are ground very thin behind the edge which makes for a great cutting feel. Less space between the choil and handle than most knives we've seen but the impeccable balance makes for an extremely comfortable feel in the hand.
