228mm gyuto in W2, a high carbon steel capable of high hardness and keen edge retention. This blade has been differentially hardened to create a hamon and has a tested edge hardness of 64hrc. 

The hamon has nice activity across the blade as seen in the photos and has some some visible darker shadow above the hardening line. This may just be my favourite hamon yet!

This blade has been convex ground for food release with continuous distal taper from 2.88mm to an extremely fine tip at 0.4mm before the tip. The spine and choil has been rounded and mirror polished and the edge sharpened to 4k on whetstones. 

The handle features some stunning stabilized Tasmanian Blackwood with a brass bolster. 

This knife includes a padded case for safe travel and includes FREE shipping worldwide via DHL Express.
