AUS-8 is a Molybdenum stainless steel containing Vanadium, which adds hardness to the steel, aiding in edge-retention and durability. Molybdenum helps with corrosion resistance. AUS-8 is a great choice for people new to Japanese knives and/or sharpening, line cooks, prep cooks, or home cooks because:

-It is easy to sharpen and/or hone

-Has good corrosion resistance

-Is reasonably priced 

-Offers a good balance of hardness and corrosion resistance

Gyuto is a multipurpose knife equivalent to a chefs knife that can be used for many tasks such as cutting and slicing meat, fish, vegetables and fruit. The fine tip of the blade allows for more detailed work. This is a great option for a wide range of tasks.
