Radiona Breg Gyuto 225mm 1.2562 Honyaki African Blackwood and Almond HandleRadiona Breg
Tomislav has a deep respect for traditional craftsmanship, but he is also a very creative individual with a passion for unique design. From his handle profile, to the mini forged integral and even the use of steel this is a totally unique piece.
I am pretty sure you would struggle to find another Honyaki blade forged in 1.2562 steel for one thing. It’s a very premium steel, but unlike Shirogami, Aogami and 26c3(Spicy White) it’s not typically used for Honyaki blades. Additionally, the hamon that Tomislav has created on this blade is also very unique.
More generally speaking, like all of Tomislav’s work, this is a very high-performance blade with a nicely finished convex grind and a lovely profile. In keeping with the Radiona Breg style the blade also features a highly tapered spine that ends in a needle like tip.
I’ve given Tomislav praise for his handle profile before, but as if to show off, he has managed to secure a very nice Almond and African Blackwood combination for this beautiful knife. Continuing the creative and unique design to the end, the knife also features a beautiful Saya constructed out of walnut and finished with a very cool flat style pin.
Tomislav is creating some truly unique work, his fit and finish and geometry are some fo the best around. it’s a pleasure to be able to work with him and to be able to offer such amazing knives on Modern Cooking.
