Evolution Cutlery Gyuto 230mm - 52100 CuMaiEvolution Cutlery (Dan Tompkins)
If this beautiful Evolution Cutlery Gyuto doesn't capture your eye we don't know what will. Dan Tompkins of Evolution Cutlery has been training under the famous Greg Cimms, a Master ABS blade smith who is well known amongst the knife collector community.
Recently Dan established his own brand, Evolution Cutlery, and he has been making a big splash with kitchen knives like this beautiful 230mm Gyuto forged in high performance 52100 carbon steel and clad in an absolutely stunning CuMai Damascus from Dion Damascus.
From end to end this is a beautiful piece of functional art. The custom octagonal Japanese style Wa handle has been hand shaped and features beautiful stabilised box elder burl with a carbon fibre collar, g10 and silver spacers. The handle has a subtle taper to it, which give the knife a very comfortable and premium feel about it. Dan has shaped the blade very nicely.
The profile has a decent flat section for those who like to chop and subtle curve towards the tip for the rock-choppers. Performance wise the blade is very thin behind the edge and features a subtle distal taper. 3mm at the handle, down to 2mm just before heading into the tip. Balance is sitting just forward of the heal of the blade. All-round, very nice to use, great fit and finish. We are very excited to see more from Dan and we know that someone will be very happy to take this lovely knife home.
