【What is Gyuto knife?】
Gyuto was introduced by Westerners along with the meat-eating culture in the mid 1900s, while Japanese tribes were rice & fish eaters. The width of the blade is narrower than the Santoku knife, and it was designed for cutting meat. It is widely used by those who often cut large pieces of food. It is slimmer and looks stylish than Santoku. It is the 2nd most popular knife after Santoku in Japan.

【Molybdenum 8A (High-Purity)】
Molybdenum 8A is basically the mixture of Molybdenum and Vanadium,
By combining Molybdenum and Vanadium, the blade get stronger against friction.
