Made by KAI who is the manufacturer under which SHUN knives are also produced. Founded in 1908 in Seki (Japan), the Magoroku collection is the affordable entry into the world of Japanese knives. The Wakatake series features polypropylene handles on high-carbon stainless steel making them ideal contestants for a fast paced environment. Very thin behind the edge, they are not only light in the hand but also glide throught indredients easily thanks to such a slim geometry. If you are on a budget and don't want to compromise performance, this series can get the job done.

Gyutos are known as the only knife needed in the kitchen. The blades typically range from 210mm to 270mm in length and are appreciated for their taller heel. Gyuto’s are a great option for most as they have a reasonably flat profile toward the heel for chopping, a belly toward the tip of the blade for rock cutting, and a pointed tip for precision work. which is why many chefs prefer a Gyuto over many other models.

While often similar in shape when compared to Western chef knives, Japanese Gyuto’s have a reputation for being lighter and thinner.
