Sometimes we're the lucky temporary custodians of an absolute masterpiece travelling from maker to its new owner and this is unquestionably one of those times!
We've had this incredible blue #2 / white #2 "coreless" damascus gyuto from damascus artist @shoichi_hashimoto for a little while as we decided how best to finish off the blade which is made from more than 70 layers of blue and white steel forged to create the incredible finish that has a depth we've only ever seen on the Nigrara Hamono Troll Killer as a comparable knife.
The grind, balance and profile show a deep understanding of how a high quality knife should perform and not only looks incredible but has an edge quality that matches the forging and design.
Ultimately instead of fitting a "regular" premium handle there was only one choice and so this mind blowing blade has been fitted with a one-off yellow cedar burl, faux ivory and brass spacer handle from @letshandlethis

Our aim is to measure and photograph our products as accurately as possible but due to many items being handmade, finished or using natural materials, there can be minor variance in measurements and things such as blade or wood finishes can vary. We will always endeavour to provide the most accurate measurements, photos and descriptions of our products.
Some measurements such as HRC are provided by manufacturers and should therefore be used as a guide.
