Gyuto 230mm 125sc Honyaki Deep Etch
Forged in 125sc high carbon steel and clay quenched for a Honyaki finish. The blade has been etched to reveal a subtle and beautiful hamon, but also features incredible alloy banding.
Fitted with a beautiful Raffir Allume handle, red and black hues with mesh aluminum fibers and stainless hardware for the Adonis Forged Arts signature name plate, bolster, and heel piece.
The mesh aluminum fibers almost emulate the beautiful alloy banding in the steel. Another stunning piece of work from French Artisan Antoine Kniamen.

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.
