Triple-Layer Japanese Kitchen Knives with Japanese Red Oak Handle

A Gyuto Knife is a Japanese kitchen knife made for all different styles of cutting from meat to vegetables to tiny pieces of garlic. Think of this knife as a Western Chef's knife equivalent, but perhaps slightly more sleek with its stainless steel Japanese blade.

Santoku knives or to give them their full name Santoku bocho knives, which translates as 'three uses', are ideal for mincing, dicing and slicing, as they feature a straight edge with a narrow sheep's foot blade. These knives have evolved from the traditional Japanese vegetable knife which has a rectangular blade.

Nakiri means leaf cutter in Japanese, when used in reference to a knife. This knife is especially designed to mince, chop, dice, and slice vegetables. Its broad rectangular blade characterizes it with a flat and blunt tip which is often rounded and not pointed. Besides vegetables, a Nakiri knife is also excellent for cutting fruits.
