A Gyuto knife is like the Japanese version of an all-purpose chef's knife. Think of it as the Japanese take on the classic Western chef's knife, setting the standard for all knives. In a regular Japanese kitchen, the Gyuto is the go-to for slicing and chopping various foods, including meats and veggies. But here's the catch - it's a bit more inclined towards cutting meat. Apart from its tough steel blade, it comes with a cool octagonal wooden handle called Wa-Gyuto, making it not just practical but also pretty and durable to use.
