The most versatile and essential of all knives a cook can have is a Japanese chef’s knife known as a Gyuto knife. Preparing delicious meals starts with taking wholesome ingredients and using the best tools such as a high quality chef’s knife to make every meal into something special. From dicing, slicing, and chopping fresh produce from a farmer’s market to carving a roast chicken straight from the oven, even the simplest tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional.
The Petty knife resembles a small chef’s knife and has a medium sized blade that can maneuver through both small and big jobs. It can intricately carve and style vegetables and fruits for beautiful presentations and garnishes, and can also be used for bigger jobs such as preparing meals.
Our Yoshihiro Inox Gyuto Chef Knife is forged with a curved blade that smoothly rocks back and forth with an extended tip for quick chopping. Forged from a single piece of high carbon Aus-10 stainless steel, this knife is complimented with a premium Western style high-grade composite wood handle that extends to the full tang of the knife and is certified for use in commercial kitchens, and ergonomically welds to the hand for seamless use.
Japanese knives should always be sharpened and honed on premium quality Japanese water stones. A good quality Japanese water stone not only is the best surface to sharpen and maintain the blade of your knife, but it is also the best tool to preserve and take care of the high quality steel that it is made of.
