In Japan, this knife style is known as a gyuto and is the Japanese equivalent of the chef's knife. It is an all-purpose knife ideal for meat and fish, yet it also performs beautifully on vegetables. Although the blade profile is narrower than the traditional chef's knife, it still offers plenty of knuckle clearance when cutting on a board. If you are looking for a lighter, more nimble multi-purpose kitchen knife, the Shun Premier Asian Cook's Knife is sure to become your go-to knife for a wide range of food preparation tasks.
