A Gyuto is the most versatile knife a chef can own. Our Yoshihiro AUS-8A Gyuto enables confidence while preparing fish, meats and vegetables.

Yoshihiro blade smiths add Molybdenum for hardness, toughness, corrosion resistance and a high tensile strength. Vanadium is added for strength, toughness and heat resistance. Moreover, Vanadium promotes a desired fine grain structure which allows for even wear resistance. These knives are single piece forged with a full tang and bolster.
