Gyuto is the less common name for a chef's knife.
Japanese kitchen knives, divided by specialization.
The short gyuto F-693 looks like a Santoku knife, but a bit longer.
Steel blade here Shirogami, with excellent aggressive cut.
The blade, sharp as a razor blade, is prone to rusting and requires careful attention.
You can ignore the appearance of stains, but you can not allow rusting cutting edge.
This will lead to a loss of sharpness and the knife will need sharpening, for which it is better to use water stones.
Other quality abrasives can be used, including diamond stones, but this should be done carefully and with understanding.
