Handmade in the USA by one of the season 8 champions of Forged in Fire, Joshua Fisher also known under Edge Knife Works.

Very fortunate, Joshua has also worked with Wounded Warrior Project teaching Veterans how to make knives, tomahawks, and other tools and provide a unique experience and outlet for the Veterans.
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.
*This knife includes a storage case.
