Gyuto 275mm "Kaze Series" TNT666 KU

$1,165.00

Pronounced Ka-zay, the "Kaze(Wind in Japanese) Series " represents a more traditional approach to knife making for French blacksmith Antoine Kniamen. The Kaze series features a fully forged geometry, low bevels and a traditional blacksmith finish on the face of the blade. The pitch black Kurouchi gradually passes to a silky smooth near mirror polish on the bevels.

Finished on whetstones the bevels are delightfully consistent and perfectly convex. A lovely sharp workhorse geometry, with Antoine's classic Gyuto profile complete an absolute stunning piece of work from the house of Adonis. If you enjoy maintaining your knives on whetstones, you will certainly appreciate this piece.

A classic Adonis Forged Arts, octagonal handle with brass bolster and name plate completes the knife. The handle is made of a house favourite, dyed and stabilized spalted beach, which gives the knife a classic Adonis forged arts contemporary look and pairs beautifully with the black kurouchi finish.

Hand forged, and whetstone shaped and finished bevels make the "Kaze Series" a new level in craftsmanship from this amazing French artisan. If you appreciate the art and tradition of blacksmith forged culinary knives your will truly understand how the Kaze series represent heirloom quality functional art.

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.
