Spicy White K-Tip with Hamon
Stunning 238mm gyuto with Hamon and beautifully figured timber. The blade is handmade from 26c3, commonly referred to as Spicy White, a high carbon steel capable of high hardness and ability to hold an extremely keen edge. This blade has also been differentially hardened to create a hamon and a tested edge hardness of 64.5hrc.
This blade has been convex ground with near continuous distal taper to create an extremely fine and sharp tip and cutting edge. The primary bevels have been highly polished to show off the hamon and the spine and choil rounded and polished for comfort. The edge has been sharpened to 4k on whetstones.
The handle is a western style hidden tang with a black juma bolster and stunning lace sheoak. The handle combines facets and rounded belly to sit comfortably in the palm of the hand with the knife balancing at the makers mark ensuring lightweight high performance. The knife also has a leather sheath for protection and transport.
