10" 245mm Nitro-V stainless steel Gyuto-hiki, tested to 63HRC, in my extra-heavy geometry. This knife is a heavier version of my standard gyuto-hiki, with a 50mm tall heel height. This allows for more forward weight which gives the user less perceived effort in slicing. The angular spine of the gyuto-hiki blade profile provides sujihiki like benefits in slicing and portioning, while the 50mm heel height gives the benefits of a standard gyuto. Food release is excellent.
The handle is flamed box elder, sustainably harvested from my own deadfall, and professionally stabilized in my own shop. Spacers are red and black G10. The handle is my XL (extra-long) Western Hybrid geometry, which has been argued to be my most visually stimulating, as well as my most comfortable handle to date.
This sale includes one completed knife.
