Gyutoh & Chef’s knives
The Gyutoh knife is the all purpose Japanese knife, the analog to western chef’s knife, with a thinner blade and harder steel. The Gyutoh knife blade size ranges from 21 to 27 cm. 21 cm Gyutohs are light and easy to use, whereas 24 cm are even more of a general purpose size that allow for improved slicing tasks. Gyutoh knives are popular in Western countries as they can be used as Chef’s knives when slicing, chopping and rock-chopping thanks to the curved blade.
