This slimmer (than its Santoku brother) blade is called Gyuto – meaning cow sword. It is designed to make light work of slicing, dicing and filleting raw meat and fish. It is the Japanese adaptation of the classic French cooks knife. This familiiar looking blade represents optimal versatility as it tapers from broad base to narrow point allowing efficient contact cutting, slicing and ocasional carving. The curved edge profile facilitates easier rolling action than most Santoku’s when cutting vegetables – with the revolutionary design of the Santoku in this collection this may no longer be an issue. The major difference in this collection between the two shapes is the blade width. The Gyuto is narrower making it able to cope with fatty, starchy, oily or any other foods that have a tendency to stick to the side of the blade. If you require the knife to cut more raw / cooked flesh (meat or fish) than vegetables and want to double it up for occasional carving or only use / prefer a classic western style shape, then the Gyuto is ideal.
