Best To Use

Gyuto, or Chef's knife, is a multi-purpose Japanese kitchen knife that will shine with all kinds of chopping, slicing and rocking motions on the kitchen board - at home, as well as in a professional kitchen. The knife is very sharp out-of-the-box and is ready to make some (precise) damage to the food you're about to prepare.
This Gyuto knife is part of the Tojiro's DP knife series, featuring popular VG-10 core steel, clad into two layers of softer steel for easier sharpening. A durable and fairly light stamina wood handle is used, allowing for an ergonomic and fatigue-less grip. It features a stainless bolster and three rivets for a secure handle fixation, reducing the possibility of cracks in the handle.
Tojiro is one of the top 5 largest Japanese kitchen knife manufacturers. They are renowned across Japan and internationally for their top-quality knives for a reasonable price. Tojiro's focus on advanced technologies, together with their insatiable dedication for constant improvements of their knives and materials, makes Tojiro's knives a must-have in any kitchen.
