Blade & Handle
This rust-resistant Inox gyuto has a double bevel blade but Japanese (wa) style handle. It's perfect for cooks who want an extremely sharp knife but don't want to maintain a carbon steel blade. This reasonably priced, high-quality knife is a good choice for both culinary students and professional cooks who don't want to pay a premium for a global Manufacturer name.
This knife is made in the honyaki style, meaning that it is made with one piece of metal. The advantage of this is that you can change the bevel angle by sharpening it to your liking.
The gyuto is the Japanese version of the classic Western chef's knife but the blade is thinner and holds a sharper edge. Use it for chopping, mincing and slicing meat, fish, vegetables and fruit.
