The Gyuto knife originally came from the West. So it is a Western kitchen knife widely used around the world. An all-rounder, the Gyuto can cut meat, fish (other than bone), and vegetables. Also known as a French knife, Chef's knife, or all-purpose knife, it is used by many people in place of a Santoku knife. The difference from a Santoku knife is that it comes in size increments of 30mm up to a length of about 300mm.
