Satake

Specialising in the manufacture of high quality kitchen tools, Satake has been developing knives of excellent quality and value since 1947 whilst constantly improving the technology and innovation used in their manufacturing process. Thanks to a well-equipped manufacturing facility, they are able to produce quality products at and affordable price and they offer various ranges of knives to suit the needs of any home cook or professional.

Satake Magoroku Gyuto is manufactured using softer stainless steel offering great resistance to corrosion whist still providing ample edge retention and sharpness. The handle is a very simple, Western inspired handle made from Natural wood and is comfortable and durable. The Gyuto, an all round knife which can be used for various tasks, is the Japanese version of a chef’s knife. Gyuto’s generally have a flatter blade profile near the heel to aid in chopping, a rounder belly for rock chopping and a sharp, pointed tip for precision cutting.

 

Gyuto

Gyuto (Chef’s) Knife (牛刀包丁 – pronounced: Gyūtō Bōchō) literally translated from Japanese means ‘Cow Blade’. ‘Gyu’ means Cow and ‘to’ means blade. The name stems from its original use to slice and disjoint large cuts of beef. These days the Gyuto is comparable to the Western-styled chef knife and is viewed as an all-rounder in the kitchen.

The Gyuto is the ultimate multi-purpose kitchen knife and is perfect for chopping, slicing, mincing and dicing boneless meat, fish, vegetables, fruit and herbs. The blade profile is well suited for tap-chop or thrust-cut. The slight curve from the middle of the blade leading to its pointed edge is used to rock-chop. Its name also suggests that it is perfect for cutting meat and doing light butcher work. It can be used to pull-cut softer meats or to push-cut more muscular cuts of meat.

The Gyuto features a longer blade providing versatility for cutting larger produce while the tip of the blade allows it to be nimble enough for precision work. The edge is flat from the heel to the belly with a slightly rounded profile from the belly to the tip. The hard steel used in manufacturing makes the double-bevel edge much sharper than Western chef’s knives and retains the ultra-sharp edge for much longer.

Care Instructions

  • Wash and dry the blade by hand immediately after use. Dishwashers are very bad for all knives.
  • Use a soft cloth to wash the blade. Avoid abrasive dish scrubbers and powders as these can damage the finish of your beautiful knife.
  • Do not cut through bones. You can certainly cut along/beside bones, but do not cut into bones. This can, at worst, chip the blade.
  • Never use this knife to cut frozen food.
  • Never twist or cleave the blade.
  • Always use a wooden or plastic cutting board. Never cut on bamboo, glass, marble, slate, a plate, china, marble, arborite or anything harder than steel.
  • Store knives in a way that the blades will not knock into each other.
  • Never transport knives unprotected.
