Description: The gyuto is modeled after the French pattern chef's knife. Longer and slimmer than the santoku, it is suited to preparation of meat and may be used as a general purpose chef's knife. 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.
The elements of ceramic are formed in nature through thousands of years of crystallization, extreme temperatures, and literally tons of pressure. The result is a material that is close to diamond in harness, 50% harder than steel. Over the past four decades, Kyocera's unrelenting creativity has replicated this natural process, producing the finest ceramic in the world.
The unrelenting strength, unparalleled purity, and ultra-light weight of Advanced Ceramic Cutlery leave you breathless. Fruits, vegetables, and boneless meats surrender to its elegant power. Its beauty and performance are enhanced by its ease of care, chemical purity, and versatility.
