Thinner and lighter than a European Chef’s knife, the Gyuto is perfect for cutting with a vertical chop. A rare example of the influence of the Japanese aesthetic in Savernake Knives’ range, the Gyuto is super long and slightly less deep than one would expect from a European blade of this size – designed with slicing and dicing uppermost in mind, and not the rocking motion of the French classicist. Though it’s lightweight and high speed, it feels more substantial than the Classic Chef. It pairs sublimely with the Agile Yeoman to cover all kitchen bases. Expertly combining the appeal and expertise of the oriental tradition with British design and craft heritage and passion for innovation, this double bevelled beauty will serve you well!
