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 quality Japanese knives. The 青藤 assembly features a full-metal bolster, riveted ergonomic handle and a cutting core with added Carbon to create the perfect balance between Sharpness and Rust Resistance.
The Chef's Gyuto is a highly versatile and widely used kitchen knife that features a double-bevel blade design with a curved belly and a pointed tip, making it suitable for a wide range of culinary tasks. Its name, "Gyuto," translates to "cow sword" in Japanese, indicating its original use for cutting through meat, but it has since become a staple in both professional and home kitchens for various purposes.
The double-bevel edge allows for ambidextrous use and easier maintenance compared to single-bevel knives. The Gyuto excels at tasks like slicing, dicing, chopping, and even precise work like mincing herbs or garlic. Its curved edge facilitates rocking motions while the pointed tip provides precision when needed.
