Gyuto 245mm Honyaki C105-W1 Integral
One of the most beautiful pieces of work to pass through our doors this year. A gorgeous mirror polished Honyaki Gyuto 245mm with forged integral bolster. Jonas finished this one off with an incredible dyed and stabilised redwood burl handle with black truestone inlays.
The blade is forged from W1 steel, a fairly rare steel. Water quenched with a beautiful Hamon. The profile is classic Gyuto with a subtle curve and santoku tip, approximately 53mm tall and 245mm long the blade balances nicely just forward of the integral bolster. The geometry is pretty laser with a fairly aggressive distal taper and super classy Walkschliff grind. Incredibly thin behind the edge.
The handle features Jonas's tapered Rokkaku Hanmaru style handle, but boy is it stunning with the dark green hues and black and gold truestone. The combination is just beautiful!

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.
