Description: The gyuto is modeled after the French pattern chef's knife. Longer and slimmer than the santoku, it is well suited to preparation of meat and other general purpose tasks around the kitchen. The long blade is needed for the sawing motion required to cut meat and the slim profile keeps the weight low and the balance right.

Dojo Blue Steel knives are formed by forge-welding a core of high-carbon "blue" steel between two layers of stainless steel. The stainless steel sides have been "hammer finished" so as to decrease friction and suction that can cause foods to stick to the side of the knife. Blue steel is a complex steel noted for its ability to hold an exceedingly sharp, long-lasting edge. Because blue steel is a carbon steel, these knives must be dried after use to prevent rust or tarnish. The blades are tempered to Rc62 and will hold their edge considerably longer than any Western-made knife.

The Pakawood handles are made by compressing together very thin slices of wood which have been pressure treated with resin. This process results in a handle that is impervious to water and will hold up well to the demanding environment of a kitchen. For strength, the handles are riveted to the full length tang. Each blade comes razor sharp.

  • Carbon "blue steel" san mai blade
  • "Hammer finish" reduces food sticking to the side of the knife
  • Extremely hard cutting edge for long-lasting razor sharp knives
  • Durable Pakawood handle
