Gyuto 225mm Lazy Twist
A classic piece from Martin Huber. House made Damascus 1.2842, 75Ni8, C100 forged in a lazy twist pattern. A unique combination of symmetrical and asymmetrical linear and circular patterns. Finished with a touch of brute de forge around the spine. A very cool looking piece of steel.
The profile is a classic Martin Huber Santoku tipped Euro style Gyuto profile. Relatively tall compared to a Japanese Gyuto and ground workhorse for a stable cutting experience and a durable edge.
Martin’s tapered Rokkaku Hanmaru handle is a very comfortable in the handle. Always produced in premium stabilized woods, or other robust and durable materials and screw fastened.
Generally speaking, Martin produces incredibly well made knives and this Gyuto is no exception. If you are in the market for a beautiful Gyuto with a durable edge geometry perfect for working through hardy produce look no further.

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.
