The point of choosing Gyuto Knife

The length of the blade

It's very important to choose the size of blade. If you use it at home, we recommend to use the length of 18 to 21 cm blade. Long knife, over 25 cm is difficult for beginners to use, but it depends on your hands.

If you purchase it for the first time, choose 18 to 21 cm blade of length. It's easy to handle and popular.

Over 21 cm blade is useful when you cook block meat and large fish. If you are a professional chef, you may need to use the long one for advanced cook.
