10" 245mm Nitro-V stainless steel Gyuto-hiki, tested to 63HRC, in my standard laser geometry. This knife has a 50mm tall heel height. This provides a moderate forward weight which gives the knife a very nimble, quick feeling in hand. while the exceptional thinness makes this an amazingly precise slicer. 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 good to excellent depending on your technique.
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 with a vibrant red slash of Bloody Basin Jasper Tru-Stone. 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.
