Misono Swedish Carbon Gyutou 240mm (9.4")


Misono Carbon 

The carbon steel line from Misono offers outstanding performance.  Made from the highest quality, purest carbon steel to ensure the sharpest edge and best edge retention, these knives are remarkably easy to re-sharpen. The strengthened wood handle protects against water damage and each knife is hand sharpened by Misono artisans to ensure maximum sharpness out of the box.

Why we love it: Approachable price, gets screaming sharp and can stand up to the rigors of professional kitchen use.

Please note: This knife is made from carbon steel, which gets incredibly sharp and is easy to sharpen but requires additional maintenance. This knife should be kept clean and dry at all times and oiled when not in use for an extended amount of time. Carbon knives can be reactive with high acid foods.

About this shape

Gyutou are the Japanese equivalent of a typical European chef’s knife. They are the ideal all-purpose kitchen knives and can be used for most tasks. Japanese gyutou are typically lighter and thinner than a European knife, are made out of a harder steel and as a result, hold a better edge. The design features nothing to obstructing the edge of the handle end of the blade, so it can be sharpened and thus used entirely. The word gyutou in Japanese means ‘beef knife’.
