Gyuto is Chef's knife.
From your kitchen to a chef's kitchen, this knife is used most frequently.

Inspired by the profile of a traditional European chef knife, Gyutos are a multipurpose knife with a slight meat cutting bias. “Gyuto” translates to “cow sword.” If you want one knife to do it all, this is it. For the at-home or professional cook as well.

Only cut food you can bite through with this knife. Hard foods can chip the blade. No olive pits, bones, lobster shells, woody stems or parmesan rinds. Cutting frozen food is especially bad because the cold will make hard steel even more brittle. If you wouldn’t chew it with your own teeth, don’t cut it.  

After use, wash the knife by hand with regular dish soap, rinse with hot water and dry by hand immediatelyDishwashers are very bad for knives.  

Aogami Steel easily gets rust and requires good maintenance.

What is kurouchi knife?
Kurouchi knives retain the scaly residue left from the forging process, meaning that the residue works as coating on the carbon steel to prevent from rust.

Hammering steel to give it shape and strength. The finish of Kurouch reduces reactivity on carbon steel knives, and give the knife a very characterful, rustic aesthetic prized by many knife enthusiasts.

Kurouchi finishes varying widely in appearance, uniformity, and durability. Rarely do pictures do these finishes justice as they have a very complex look and feel to them.
Of course, you need to sharpen the edge every time after using it even if the Kurouchi coating works for the sides of blade.
