10" 255mm Nitro-V stainless steel XT Gyuto, tested to 63HRC, in my extra extra-heavy geometry. This knife is a great general use knife...for those who like a longer blade WITH WEIGHT. These blades often come in just short of a full pound (13-15oz). The 65mm heel height vs the standard 50mm allows even better leverage and increased forward balance. The extra-heavy geometry provides added forward balance as well, for superior cutting performance and less perceived cutting effort, along with a substantially improved food release granted by the proprietary geometry.
This blade is a full 2x thicker than the same blade in my standard geometry, and is by far the heaviest culinary blade I make. These are usually only custom order blades, in AISI W2 Tool Steel, but I decided to do a run of them in this high performance stainless. I cannot guarantee that these will be available as a regular option!...so if you're interested I would suggest acting now.
This sale includes one completed knife. You can choose either the pictured Japanese edge profile, or a modified European edge profile (for rock chopping) at no extra charge. The knife comes with my standard geometry handle (faceted diamond, please select in the options) and standard handle material (currently a rather beautiful stabilized silver poplar, you can see examples pictured above, and video on my YouTube under the title 'Stabilized Silver Poplar'). G10/metal/G10 spacers in either a straight or diagonal configuration are also included. Upgraded handle material, and spacer options are available for an additional cost, and can be discussed before starting the knife (please select 'Custom Material' above, and use the 'Contact Me' option on the main page). Payment for material options will be due on completion of the knife, before delivery.*******DELIVERY OF PROJECT KNIVES IS 30 to 90 days.
