Gyuto is the Japanese equivalent to the western chef's knife, and the Kikuichi Molybdenum Gyuto Knife is an all-purpose knife designed in this style. The blade is thinner and narrower than a standard chef's knife. It is suitable for use with meat, fish, and vegetables.

Kikuichi has been making kitchen cutlery for 150 years, with the royal symbol of the chrysanthemum on all blades.

The black resin handle is triple-riveted
