Gyuto is the Japanese equivalent to the western chef's knife, and the Itamae Series Gyuto knife from the Murray Carter Collection by Spyderco 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.
"Itamae" is a prestigious title for elite sushi chefs, and the Itamae Series from the Murray Carter Collection by Spyderco features premium materials and uncompromising craftsmanship. The blades are made from an Aogami Super Blue core between layers of SUS410 stainless steel. The outer layers protect and support the ultra-hard carbon steel core that forms the blade's edge. Itamae Series blades are ground thin and straight, with the signature "Carter Elbow" distinctive of Murray Carter's designs. Itamae Series handles are crafted in the traditional Japanese octagonal shape from burl G10 -- a durable fiberglass and epoxy laminate -- with black G10 ferrules.
