Thread: New profile, 240 mm Carbon Gyuto

  1. #1

    New profile, 240 mm Carbon Gyuto

    This is a new steel I am trying, it is a high carbon steel, at HRC 64.5, Transitional grind. Convex lower, and slight hollow upper blade.

    It has a G10 ferrule, stainless and mammoth tooth spacer

    African black wood handle, wood from Mark at Burl Source. This stuff polishes up like glass!

    Keep in mind, this is pre sharpening and pre glue up.

    Thanks for looking, and comments welcome!

    Very slick, Pierre. The mammoth tooth livens up the handle. The profile does look very KS like to me.

    Salty is the inspiration, design, and motivation behind this one. I have been chatting back and forth on this on for a while.

    The steel is a particle metallurgy steel. Very abrasion resistant.

    Beautiful, as always Pierre.
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.
