This product is unavailable

The is a raw, natural beauty to the knives that Karol Karyś produces. Like they have been produced by nature herself through erosion and the unyielding force of weather beating down for years upon years. The textures Karol imprints upon his knives are inspired by brutalist architecture and when combined with Honyaki the result is stunning.

This 180mm Gyuto features a variety of textures along the face of the blade that emphasis the hamon or temper line and provide a beautiful aesthetic. The blade profile is a nimble K-tip gyuto profile perfect for everyday slicing and dicing.

The lovely textured blade is paired with a beautiful stabilized Karelian Birch burl, a true piece of nature’s artistry, which Karol has finished with a copper, textured bolster. Karol’s work is some of the most unique to come out of Europe and simply a pleasure to use.

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. 

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.
