Gyuto 220mm AEB-L Stainless Steel - "S" Grind

4.520,00 kr

Lew Griffin Gyuto 220mm. A great combination of AEB-L steel, Bog Oak and Walnut burl. AEB-L is a Swedish stainless steel produced in Uddeholm that has great toughness, edge retention and a HRC at 62+ makes it comparable to SG2/R2.

Performance comes first with any Lew Griffin knife and the “S” grind is almost a trademark feature of his. Measuring the blade thickness 10mm behind the edge reveals a super thin 0.9mm and with an average spine thickness in the region of 2mm this blade can only be described as a high-performance laser.

The blade profile feels more in line with a European chef’s knife than a gyuto, with a more bellied and curved edge and virtually no flat section. If you are a rock chopper, you will love this knife. There is even a little bit a heel curve that give the knife a bit of a rock back action. This profile will also perform admirably when slicing. The profile also has a substantial height to it, which is always welcome in my book.

Completing the knife is a very nicely finished bespoke western grip made from Walnut burl and Bog Oak. The handle has a very nice ergonomic feel to it, with zero rough edges and some lovely faceting.

Unique, beautifully crafted, and thoughtfully designed. A very nice knife forged in a high quality stainless steel.

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.
