These single steel blades are tough and sharp, with an edge geometry that is like a faster, thinner version of its European counterparts. Light and easy to sharpen, our Carbon Steel series takes a very keen edge due to the fine grain structure of the steel.

*The Gyuto or Chef Knife is considered by many to be the most important and diverse knife of all. This jack of all trades style knife can be used for all kinds of tasks including boneless meat or fish butchery, vegetable prep, cutting and slicing herbs, as a line knife and much more. Typically ranging in size from 180mm to 300mm the blade shape can vary from maker to maker but typically they will be somewhat flat towards the rear of the knife working up to a "belly" making it suitable for rocking or push cutting. If you can only have one knife this would be a top contender.*
