Matsutani is a knife maker from Takefu Knife village making knives from VG1 and VG10 steel.
This chefs knife is made from VG1 which is closely related to VG10 with the same stainless qualities, carbon content but toned down a little on other alloying components.
The knives are very nicely finished for the value with its dark brown handles and hammer pattern look.
Gyuto is the japanese name for knives we know as chefs knives.
