Knife Description

This knife is ideal for someone who is looking for a thicker gyuto (chef's knife). The core steel is OC100, which is very similar to Shirogami#2 steel and is laminated with nickel and wrought iron. Wrought iron will reveal an amazing pattern when polished on Japanese natural stones! The knife has been ground by Žiga, our master sharpener here at SharpEdge. The handle is made by Slovenian handle maker Žak Glinšek. He used olive wood and American walnut to make this beautiful octagonal handle.

Imperfections

This knife has no imperfections.
