240mm Custom Gyuto
This Japanese kitchen knife is forged from high end stainless steel. Rare handle made from Armadillo Shell layered over solid Corian.
This knife is from our 2018 Christmas Cellar Release. Each year we search for a number of very special knives to release just before Christmas.
Hand-forged from SG2 Damascus steel (also known as R2) this knife is custom made with no other knife exactly the same. The blade is ground slightly thicker than many Japanese knives so it retains a solid hand feel with some extra weight. After forging the steel is treated with a heavy acid etch to bring out the textures in the nickel damascus.
Each knife is unique and will stand proud in any collection.
- As this knife is handmade, patterns, weights, colours and measurements will vary from the photo.
- Care should be taken not to chip the edge.
- The actual length of the cutting edge is noted under "blade length" in the chart below.
