The Gyuto is an adaptation of the western slicing or carving knife profile for the Japanese market. However unlike a Western Cooks knife that is predominantlymeant only for meat, its versatility is the same a santoku and can be used as a general-purpose knife for any task. Many would consider a Gyuto to be essential knife for cook with all other knives being secondary. Compared to a Western style chef’s knife, a Gyuto has a somewhat flatter profile: this profile lends itself well to push-cutting which is common for Japanese chefs, as opposed to rock-chopping. Gyuto knives also tend to be thinner at the edge as well as the spine than most Western chef’s knives and as a result have less lateral toughness and care should be taken not to torque the blade while cutting to minimize the risk of chipping.
