Hello Everyone,

I have a nice AEB-L gyuto here that's a little on the light side and very thin. I'm not sure I would qualify this blade as a true laser, but it's very close, and if not, borderline. I sent a knife to one of our members some time ago who is very pleased with the performance of his blade, so I set about recreating the tapers of that blade with just a couple of alterations. The original knife was only 50mm tall, this blade is 55mm. Additionally it has a grind I'm experimenting with designed at improving food release on very thin blades. Whereas the inner blade face is tapered in a nearly straight line, the outer face has a more aggressive taper at the heel that becomes more gradual at halfway. It may only amount to a minor improvement in practice, but I'm trying to get what I can out of these thin blades.

This blade also includes a handle style I've never tried before, half octagon. Faceted on top, round on the bottom.

If all goes well this week I should have a new blade posted every day. Coming next are a couple of suji...and then something in MagnaCut.

Thanks for looking.
