This gyuto has a 215mm cutting edge and 3.5mm spine tapering to the tip. The blade is handmade from RWL-34, a premium powder metallurgy stainless steel developed by Damasteel for its high hardness and toughness combined with its ability to hold an extremely keen edge.

This blade has been heat treated with a cryogenic cycle in liquid nitrogen to a final hardness of 63hrc. It has been convex ground with near continuous distal taper to create an extremely fine and sharp cutting edge. The primary bevels have been finished with an 800g satin hand rubbed finish with polished spine and choil for comfort. The edge has been sharped to 4k on whetstones. 

The handle is a Japanese wa style hidden tang with Ivory Juma bolster, brass and black G10 spacers with a natural ringed Gidgee handle. The handle shape sits comfortably in the palm of the hand whilst also ensuring adequate knuckle clearance. The knife balances just in front of the bolster and weighs a total of 167g, ensuring lightweight high performance. 

This knife has a loose fit saya made from eucalypt burl. The pin is tapered to ensure a continuously snug fit and is made from Ivory Juma and brass to match the handle.
