Handforged kitchen knife made in my little studio.

Traditional chef’s knife/ GYUTO


Flat grind. The blade is really thin. Spine tapers from 2,7mm at heal to 1.5mm spine at the middle, 1,3mm just before the bevel starts on the tip. The thin grind means it will cut most of the veggies and meat super easily (won’t wedge), but should not do deboning, cutting through bones or harder shells, different grind should be done for that. It feels like a laser cutting through stuff with almost no resistance. Downside to the thin grind is that food release is also not very good.

The finish on the blade is made on the traditional Japanese Waterstones


Handle is purple spalted birch, stabilized by me in multiple colors. The spacer is linen micarta. It’s octagonally shaped.
The finish is a mat as I’m not the biggest fan of high gloss. If you like to have it shiny, please contact me as the handle can be buffed.

-mincing, dicing, and slicing
