Translating as 'Cow sword', the Gyuto is a multi-purpose, large bladed knife that you can use for almost everything. Typically these are light strong knives, and hold a very sharp blade easily. They are also easy to sharpen due to the shape of blade. Blades range from 180mm to 240mm normally (although sometimes longer), with 210mm being the most common and popular size. The blade profile is great for cutting in a rocking type motion.
Do not use the knife to chop hard materials such as bones or frozen items unless the knife is made for that specific purpose. Always ensure you keep your knife clean and dry, and sharpen it as required to prevent a dull edge.
