Lew Griffin Gyuto 220mm. A great combination of AEB-L steel, Bog Oak and Walnut burl. AEB-L is a Swedish stainless steel produced in Uddeholm that has great toughness, edge retention and a HRC at 62+ makes it comparable to SG2/R2.

Performance comes first with any Lew Griffin knife and the “S” grind is almost a trademark feature of his. Measuring the blade thickness 10mm behind the edge reveals a super thin 0.9mm and with an average spine thickness in the region of 2mm this blade can only be described as a high-performance laser.

The blade profile feels more in line with a European chef’s knife than a gyuto, with a more bellied and curved edge and virtually no flat section. If you are a rock chopper, you will love this knife. There is even a little bit a heel curve that give the knife a bit of a rock back action. This profile will also perform admirably when slicing. The profile also has a substantial height to it, which is always welcome in my book.

Completing the knife is a very nicely finished bespoke western grip made from Walnut burl and Bog Oak. The handle has a very nice ergonomic feel to it, with zero rough edges and some lovely faceting.

Unique, beautifully crafted, and thoughtfully designed. A very nice knife forged in a high quality stainless steel.
