8.5" 220mm Nitro-V stainless steel XXT Gyuto, tested to 63HRC, in my standard geometry. This knife is a laser, with a 65mm heel height vs the standard 50mm, allowing even better leverage and increased forward balance for superior cutting performance, as well as the improved food release granted by my proprietary geometry.
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.
