Gyuto 225mm C Grind Spalted Beach & Brass


Antoine Kniamen has been somewhat of a sleeping giant of the European kitchen knife world but be sure to keep an eye on this incredible craftsman because he is about to make a huge splash. This beautiful Gyuto stands out first and foremost because of the incredible grind, profile and fit and finish. Beneath the surface lays a focus on high quality hardening and premium quality 1.2442 high tungsten German tool steel.

Aggressive distal taper, a pointed Gyuto profile that lands the way you want it to and rocks with an ease that delights, and a precision C grind that move through produce like it’s not even there and leaves nothing hanging about.

So, we have a high-performance knife, but does it look good? I’ll leave that up to you, but I know how I feel.

Plainly described, the knife features a touch of brute de forge at the spine, which gives the knife a grippy surface at the pinch point. Antoine has been experimenting with wiped on forced patinas, creating unique patterns on the face of the blade in beautiful blue, purple and black hues, its undeniable unique and beautiful.

The handle, a dyed and stabilised spalted beach, adds a vibrant yet classy touch to an already beautiful piece of work and the handle is finished with a signature brass bolster and Adonis Forged Arts name plate.

Trust me when I say, if you’re not watching, you should be and if you’re considering a knife from Adonis Forged Art, do it! You won’t be disappointed.

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.

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.
