Blade & Handle
This rust-resistant gyuto is a good value for both home and professional cooks. It is the most popular choice for those who want a basic, multipurpose and quality Japanese knife without splurging. The blade of Ikkaku Donryu knives come sharper than Western-style knives that cost much more. You will notice rough sharpening patterns on the blade but please be aware that this was done intentionally to make sharpening easier later.
The gyuto is the Japanese version of the classic Western chef's knife but the blade is thinner and holds a sharper edge. Use it for chopping, mincing and slicing meat, fish, vegetables and fruit.
