A stunning one of a kind piece from Australian knife making duo Luke and Danae Scheepers. This is a Gyuto 220mm with a full carbon suminagashi construction. The core is forged in Vtoku2, hardened to approximately 62+ HRC, and clad in a beautiful full carbon Damascus. This bad boy is going to transform with age into something very special, an absolute patina magnet!

When it come to the handle its a tasteful dyed and stabilised maple octagonal handle in blue and red hues. The colours pair beautifully with the dark Damascus and as the blade begins to patina this pairing will only become more beautiful. Typically, thoughtful designers, but the Scheepers have really nailed it on this one.

Luke Scheepers has a solid understanding when it comes to blade performance, often giving the blades technical grinds, like the "S" grind that is often found on his bunka's. On this blade it’s a symmetrical convex and it is beautifully thin behind the edge. This will be a lovely knife to work with and something special to behold especially as it ages.
