Rosewood Gyuto in RWL34
245mm Gyuto in Damasteel RWL-34, a premium powder metallurgy stainless steel known for its high hardness and toughness combined with its ability to hold an extremely keen edge.
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 finished with an 1200g satin hand rubbed finish with mirror polished spine and choil for comfort. The edge has been sharped to 4k on whetstones.
The handle is a western style hidden tang with a brass heirloom fit bolster and stunning dark Rosewood. The handle has a number of facets to sit comfortably in the palm of the hand while also providing exceptional control. The knife balances at the makers mark ensuring lightweight high performance.
This knife also comes with a highly figured Ringed Gidgee Saya. The sheath has been lined with leather to better protect the highly polished blade. The Saya has a tapered Ringed Gidgee frame with brass liners. The brass retention pin is tapered to ensure a snug fit over time and use.
This is a high hardness, keen edged high performance knife and as such care must be taken to protect the edge (i.e. please do not cut frozen foods).
