Gyuto 240mm Honyaki - Brute de Forge and Birch Bark


This product is unavailable

The Gyuto 240mm Honyaki - Brute de Forge with stacked birch bark is perhaps a little familiar as a similar piece was featured in Blade Magazine last year. The silky smooth mirror finish with the subtle touch of brute de forge above the Hamon is a very classy look.

Performance wise the blade features 64+HRC 26c3 "Spicy White" steel, Jonas's pointed Gyuto profile and very nicely finished walkschliff grind. For those unfamiliar with the walkschliff its basically convex plus, we have written a little about it in a recent post. Jonas has done an amazing job on these grinds and you will certainly find that they perform beautifully well on the board. Nice distal taper, super thin edge and delightfully balance result in one of the best made knives around.

A signature stacked birch bark handle completes this heirloom piece from Jonas.

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.
