The Steel - Aogami (Blue) #1
Aogami #1 is a premium carbon steel used primarily by master Blacksmiths. In their hands it is one of the best performing steels around. It has exceptional sharpness, exceptional retention and is very responsive to sharpening, so it's an amazing knife to keep in it's best condition. As with all carbon knives it should be kept clean an dry to protect the blade.
The Model - Gyuto
The Gyuto is a multi-purpose, large bladed knife that you can use for almost everything. Typically these are light strong knives which range from 180mm to 240mm normally (although sometimes longer), with 210mm being the most common and popular size due to it's sweet spot of length for larger tasks but excellent agility. Longer knives tend to be used more for high volume tasks in professional kitchens where 240mm and even 270mm are popular. 180mm is popular for smaller home kitchen tasks too.
The blade profile is great for cutting in a rocking type motion. If you are looking for one knife, this is the most versatile.
