Gyutos are the Japanese chef knife. The one knife almost every cook that is into Japanese knives owns. They are regarded as an all round cutter, slicer and chopper.

The Richmond Artifex AEB-L Gyuto is a great knife for professional line chefs and enthusiast home cooks looking for a start in the world of Japanese style knives. It is made from a single piece (mono steel) of stainless steel called AEB-L. This rugged steel was originally developed for use in the manufacture of razor blades. It has has since proved to be an excellent steel for use in kitchen knives. It has really good edge retention and is relatively easy to sharpen.

The Artifex AEB-L gyuto weighs 6oz which is about the average for this style of knife. It comes with a very nice thin grind and gentle distal taper. It has a nice thin tip too. The edge profile is fairly flat and it is quite sharp out of the box but can be improved on with a simple touch up on some fine stones.

The knife comes with a well made, nicely finished black linen micarta composite handle which does not have a traditional bolster. Consequently it feels rather like a Western-Japanese hybrid. So itís a good choice for both pinch and racket style grips. The fit and finish are really first rate especially considering its low price.
