Gyuto 240mm 100Cr6 Integral
Martin Huber Gyuto 240mm with a forged integral handle, screw fastened hidden tang construction and a mono steel (100Cr6) blade. The blade features a highly polished, forged finish up near the spine, which provides a lovely textured surface to pinch. Below, the face has been satin polished with visible, but consistent sanding lines diagonally reaching down towards the edge of the blade. It’s a beautiful effect that pairs perfectly with the cement like texture of the forged finish at the spine.
When it comes to geometry, this blade features some aggressive lines. A relatively thick, but tapered spine and a needle like K-tip make for a versatile blade that I would consider a nimble workhorse. The edge profile is very much a classic Japanese Gyuto. A nicely convexed blade with a thin, sharp edge and robust, yet tapered spine.
It’s just aesthetics, but Martin has given this blade a pair of 45-degree facets along the spine that look very cool. They are smooth to the touch and only effect the blade from an aesthetics perspective, but it’s a nice feature and a unique look.
Reach for the handle and you will be very impressed. The forged integral feels very comfortable in a pinch and the knife is balanced perfectly over those angled shoulders. A bespoke octagonal combination of steel, carbon, and a beautiful piece of stabilised, spalted Beech makes for a very classy combination. Paired with the polished 100Cr6 steel blade the complete package is 100% on point!

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.
A reference guide to steel types
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.
