The Gyuto bōchō (Japanese: 牛刀) is the Japanese version of the chef’s knife.

Inspired by the profile of a traditional European chef knife, Gyuto is the knife which does it all. “Gyuto” translates to “cow sword.”
It is favoured as a general purpose knife by many chefs and used for mincing, dicing, slicing & chopping larger vegetables and disjointing large cuts of meat.

The TOG Gyuto knife is made from a special steel, roll-forged in Seki City, Japan, using 800 year old Samurai Swordmaking techniques.

21 layers of metal are combined to produce the outmost sharp blade and ensure that it stays sharp.
Ten antimicrobial copper alloy layers give TOG blades their unique stripes and make TOG blades the most hygienic on the market. Each copper layer is about half the thickness of a human hair.
Incredible cutting performance from a central layer of high-carbon (1%) steel core.
The core is made from a very high quality Japanese steel called Acuto 440 that is similar to Western ‘440C’. It is hardened to Rockwell Hardness (HRC) 58-60 which is harder than most knives and typical of knives from Seki.

Blades sharpened to 10° each side giving a balance between extreme sharpness and resistance to damage.

Laser etched graphics will never fade and there is no ink to come off in your food, unlike with other brands.

TOG handles are made from Kebony maple, a Norweigan eco- alternative to tropical hardwood. Kebony is made by treating FSC** softwood with a bio-waste liquid, using heat and pressure and the result is hard, durable and water resistant.
Full tang
(blade running on full length of knife) and 3 rivets construction give additional strength to the handle.

**Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), is a non-profit organization that sets certain high standards to make sure that forestry is practiced in an environmentally responsible and socially beneficial manner. If a product, like a piece of tropical hardwood patio furniture, is labeled as "FSC Certified," it means that the wood used in the piece and the manufacturer that made it met the requirements of the Forest Stewardship Council.
