Blade Type

The Gyuto knife, a cornerstone of Japanese culinary tradition, is a versatile, all-purpose chef's knife. Its name, translating to "beef sword," reflects its proficiency in slicing meat and in more modern times vegetables. However, its slightly curved blade excels in chopping, dicing, and mincing, making it indispensable in any kitchen.

Steel Type

Japanese Blue Super Steel, an elite variant of the "Aogami" series, is a high-carbon steel alloyed with chromium, tungsten, and added vanadium. This composition enhances its wear resistance, edge retention, and overall toughness. It will still rust if left wet for too long, but not as quickly as any of the other carbon steels. Favored in fine knife crafting, Blue Super Steel is renowned for producing exceptionally sharp and durable Japanese knives.

Recommended Maintenance

Store it in a dry environment using magnetic strips, knife rolls, or sayas. Avoid hitting hard or frozen objects and twisting the blade while cutting. These knives are not dishwasher safe. Clean with hot water and a soft cloth, and dry immediately after use to prevent rust spots on the high carbon steel. For more information please read the blog below.

Knife Care

This knife is made from a high-carbon steel and as such, will require a little more care than a regular off-the-shelf knife. It must be dried shortly after use, as prolonged exposure to moisture can cause rust spots to appear. A very light coat of oil during storage also helps to prevent rust spots. A patina (colouration and seasoning of the steel) will occur with use.

Awesome knife

I fell in love with this knife the second I took it out of its package, it’s like a work of art, but once I used it, I wanted to have its babies, it’s cuts better than anything I’ve ever used before. I’m so happy with it.
