Gyuto 225mm Wrought Iron Clad 135Cr3 Deep Etch


It’s rare to find a craftsman of such talent as Milan Gravier. This is the kind of work that showcases the result of an artisan pushed by unyielding passion. We know that Milan is incredibly skilled with steel and whetstone, we know that he can forge premium performance, balanced blades. However, the quality of his fit and finish and design cannot be overlooked.

The incredibly fine heirloom fit between the striking brushed bronze bolster and the stunning Ziricote handle features breath-taking precision. Combining such a simple oval profile with complex detailed work like this gives the piece a sense of playful irony that is bound to put a smile on your face. Oh, and we must give mother nature some credit here, that Ziricote is incredibly figured, and the rich chocolate colour is something you could get lost in.

The blade of course is not to be overlooked; the deep etched wrought iron cladding is incredible. This is an incredibly unique finish, rustic, and beautiful, with an intense natural feel that is striking without being garish or loud. Classy work indeed!

Finally, the signature Milan Gravier Kasumi finish on convex bevels is of course flawless.

Product Care:

Cleaning: Clean by hand with warm water. Avoid wetting the handle when possible. 

Sharpening: We advise using whetstones to sharpen your knives and a honing rod or steel to maintain the burr between sharpening sessions. 

Reactive Steels: Reactive steels like Aogami Super, Apex Ultra or one of the many premium reactive German and Swedish steels are susceptible to rust if not properly cared for. In this case we advise that you keep the knife dry between uses and when storing the knife for longer periods wiping the knife blade with Tsubaki oil or another food safe oil is a wise choice. This will not stop a patina forming on the blade, but it will stop rust. A patina can be a beautiful personal feature on your knife and helps to stop rust forming. So, dry your knife regularly between uses, store in a dry place and apply some Tsubaki oil from time to time when storing for long periods.

Handle Care: If you have a knife with a non-stabilised wooden handle, you can apply Tsubaki oil or another food safe oil to your handle from time to time. Food safe wax can be applied to both stabilised and no-stabilised wooden handles. Never apply hot wax or oil as you risk warping or damaging the handle.
