Gyuto 210mm Mosaic Damascus, Mahogany & Brass


When Tomislav sets out to make a knife you can be sure of a few things. Firstly, it will be a truly authentic piece of artistic craftsmanship. Rarely will you come across two knives that are identical. A unique pin in the saya, an aggressive workhorse geometry or a beautiful hazy kasumi polish. This does not imply that each knife is an experiment lacking in fit and finish. This is about a creative hunger, an unyielding desire to put something beautiful and unique out into the world.

This 210mm Gyuto is 100% heirloom. Mahogany and brass accompany a beautiful mosaic Damascus blade that can only be described as perfection. I know, I know gushy! Honestly though there is little to nothing you could fault on this piece.

So, let’s talk about the details. The mosaic is a tightly layered, yet minimalist pattern forged from 1.2067 German tool steel and 75ni8. Extending from the forged integral handle is a very classy profile with subtle curves, considered flats and a pointed tip. Bringing it all together the blade features a finally tuned convex grind extending the first half of the 52mm blade height with a consistent distal taper from 2.9mm down to a precision ground tip at fractions of a millimetre. Balanced to perfection, precisely on the integral pinch point.

The fit and finish on all Tomislav’s work is phenomenal he is a master craftsman, transitioning from metal fabrication to carpentry with easy. As an enthusiast, to behold such work is awe inspiring and every time a new piece passes through, we are blown away by the subtle, yet thoughtful details. The saya is friction fit and has a custom shaped slot perfectly designed for the integral handle, the joinery is seamless and the angular shape of the saya pairs perfectly with Tomislav’s unique hexagonal handle design.

A beautiful piece of work from Tomislav aka Radion Breg. Classy design, amazing fit, and finish.

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.
