Gyuto is a professional all-purpose knife that can be used not only for cutting beef, but also for a wide range of other things such as meat, vegetables, and fish. Since it is double-edged and easy to use, it is the most frequently used kitchen knife for restaurants, except for Japanese restaurants. However, recently, Japanese restaurants have started to use a wider range of ingredients, and beef knives with Japanese handles, Japanese Gyuto, are now being used. There are also people who use an 18-21cm Gyuto instead of a Santoku knife at home.
The V-Kin No. 1 steel we use is a proven stainless steel that we have been using for a long time, and its main feature is its high hardness, which makes it easy to hold a knife in place.
Also, it is a steel that is made with low impurity raw materials and superior steelmaking technology, so it is one of the most sharpest stainless steel knives available.
Due to its high hardness, the knife is a little harder to sharpen, but the longer the knife is sharpened, the better it is for those who cook for long periods of time.

Damascus is a technique in which two types of steel with different hardness are layered together to create a unique pattern.
Different types of steel are piled on top of each other and shaped to polish the surface, creating ripples that make the hard steel shine and the soft steel dull and grain-like.
This ripple resembles the wootz steel made in the Damascus region in the past.
We call it the Damascus pattern. Its beautiful rippling pattern has earned it a reputation and is highly sought after by international chefs.

A knife store that has supported the history of knives and food culture in Japan.
It has been 600 years since craftsmen began making swords in Sakai, Japan.
This technology has been passed down to the present day and has fostered Japan's food culture. This is where the culture of completing a dish of sashimi by "just cutting" and the culture of expressing sharpness as "taste" was born.
For 70 years, we have been connecting the spirit of Sakai's craftsmen with the passion of chefs in Osaka's kitchen equipment shopping district, known as the kitchen of Japan.
We are very happy that our knives can be used by people all over the world.
