Isasmedjan Gyuto 210mm Honyaki 26c3 "Spicy White"Isasmedjan
Swedish blacksmith Jonas Johnson AKA Isasmedjan is developing a reputation as a maker of some of the best Honyaki blades outside of Japan. Although an Isasmedjan Honyaki will take a more Swedish character with regard to style, fit and finish, profile and cutting performance is equal with those found in Sakai.
This 210mm Gyuto from Jonas’s forge in the Isabackarna (Ice Hills) region of Swedan is stunning. Forged in 26c3 “spicy white” steel and hardened to a solid 64-65 HRC. The blade is nice and thin behind the edge, features a steady distal taper from 3.2mm down to 1.3mm and a Gyuto profile that feels very comfortable and provides a nice cutting action.
Like the larger 240mm Gyuto we received in this batch from Jonas, this knife features a custom octagonal wa handle in Amboyna burl and Turquoise truestone. Beautiful to behold and very comfortable in the hand.
Fit and finish is next level on all of Jonas’s knives and this is no exception. A lovely Honyaki blade, if you feel that you can sense the temptation in my tone you are not mistaken. These are very nice knives, and they will make someone very happy!
