Gyuto 250mm Rain Drop Damascus Clad Apex Ultra Amboyna & Brass
Thin and light in weight for a 250mm blade this one is a nimble and fine cutter with amazing looks. Top shelf, European Apex Ultra steel clad in Jonas’s inhouse forged raindrop Damascus.
A classic Isasmedjan pointed gyuto profile, tall with a subtle santoku tip for stability. At the edge, the profile is relatively flat with a nice amount of curve, making for a beautiful push cut action and just enough rock. Convex ground with a super thin and sharp edge, this one slices and dices with ease.
Contrast rich with an acid etched forced patina, the raindrop damascus cladding looks amazing paired with the stunning amboyna burl handle. Its eyes with eyes here and the brass bolster sets the whole package off beautifully. Another beautiful piece of work from house favourite Jonas Johnsson.

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.
