    New small gyuto

    Hi
    I took some heat earlier for my small gyuto thread's, well i thought id update a little. I ended up ordering two custom knives, one a 180 still in the works and this 150 from Mike Davies, Mike let me select the handle etc and is sending this work of art to me today. Its a 150 with Mike doing a custom handle in Buckeye burl with ebony ferrule and red spacers. I wanted a larger handle on the knife and I think this looks killer, cant wait to try it out.

    Keep what you love and get rid of what you don’t.

    Thanks guys! Here is another pic of it. Steel is .075 15n20 tool steel. Like 1075 with 2% nickel.

    Small = normal, reasonable, of a useful size. As opposed to "the bigger the better". Sort of Honda vs. Chrysler . . .

    You won't get any heat from me. I just bought a Fowler 165mm gyuto. Nice looking knife btw.
