This gyuto has a 275mm cutting edge and 3.67mm 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 64hrc. 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 hidden tang with copper bolster, copper and black G10 spacers with a natural ringed Mulga handle. The handle shape is softly rounded  and sits comfortably in the palm of the hand whilst also ensuring adequate knuckle clearance. The knife balances in-line with the makers mark on the blade and weighs a total of 198g, ensuring lightweight high performance. 

This knife has a loose fit saya made from matching ringed Mulga. The pin is tapered to ensure a continuously snug fit and is made from black Juma and copper to match the handle.
