This is a gyuto/chef knife with a workhorse grind and 203mm cutting edge. The blade is handmade from Nitro-V, a premium fine grained stainless steel developed by Knifemakers for its high hardness and toughness combined with its ability to hold an extremely keen edge, whilst being easy to sharpen.

This blade has been heat treated with a cryogenic cycle to a final tested 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 western style heirloom fit frame tang with stabilized Messmate Burl scales, brass pins and bolster and a black G10 frame. The handle shape sits comfortably in the palm of the hand whilst also ensuring adequate knuckle clearance. The knife balances in-line with the bolster and weighs a total of 200g, ensuring lightweight high performance. 

This knife also comes with a hand-stitched leather saya, that has been patterned to complement the knife.
