Chef's knife, Flat grind GYUTO, kitchen knife, Thin grind, 52100/100Cr6
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 1.6mm spine at the middle, 1,2mm 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.
Handle is bog oak, stabilized by me. The spacer is purple curly maple. 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.
Multi-Purpose Kitchen knife. This means you can use them for just about every aspect of work in the kitchen. From mincing and chopping to dicing and slicing, a sharp and well-maintained knife can get the job done every time.
