Gyuto 230mm Honyaki 26c3 Bog Oak, Carbon & German Silver Handle


We are always very excited to recieve more stock from Jonas Johnsson aka Isasmedjan. This time we have another beautiful 230mm Honyaki blade with a very laser grind and a stunning Bog Oak, Carbonfibre and German silver handle.

This blade features Jonas's classic Gyuto profile, which is provides for a lovely cutting experience. The laser grind slides through produce very comfortably and feels lovely against the board.

Unlike a classic Sakai Honyaki, this blade has a significant distal taper and at only 1.9mm at the spine mid-point and as little as 1mm an inch before the tip. Nicely convexed for those who worry about food release, a very clean grind all the way through.

Un-questionably some of the cleanest craftsmanship around. Perfectly rounded and polished spine and choil, no unsightly gaps where the tang inserts into the handle. Just a very clean piece of work.

As mentioned the handle features a very classy Bog Oak, carbonfibre and German silver combination, which is finished with Jonas's typical high standard of fit and finish.

Classic Honyaki wave hamon, perfect balance, fit and finish, beautiful handle materials and amazing cutting performance. As is always the case with Jonas's work I find myself attached to this one and I am sure it will make some lucky cook very happy.

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.
