The Gyuto is a chef knife that is used for cutting meat, fish and vegetables. It is versatile in use. This set includes two sizes.
The petty is a small chef knife. Perfect when working with smaller ingredients or delicate foods. The Sujihiki is a slicing knife. It is used to slice boneless fish fillets, poultry breasts and roasts. The height of the blade is short, reducing friction when slicing.
The Santoku is a multipurpose knife. The blade is shorter and thinner making it perfect for cooking at home or in smaller spaces. It is used to cut meat, fish and vegetables.
The Usuba is a vegetable chopping knife. The blade is thin, which is required for chopping dense vegetables without breaking them. The blade is also tall which keeps the knuckles well above the cutting board.
Japanese knives should always be sharpened and honed on premium quality Japanese water stones. A good quality Japanese water stone not only is the best surface to sharpen and maintain the blade of your knife, but it is also the best tool to preserve and take care of the high quality steel that it is made of.
