Shir Knives Gyuto 220mm 26c3 "Spicy White" HonyakiShir Knives
It arrived wrapped in a luxurious leather pouch. The knife inside is fitted with a felt saya. You feel like you are opening something special, the blade inside does not disappoint.
A superior level of care and attention to detail has been taken on every element of this knife. The blade is forged in 26c3 "Spicy White" a very high purity carbon steel with superior corrosion resistance. The profile features a substantial flat section that gradually curves up towards the tip. Hand sanded satin finish, comfortable finger rest on the choil and smooth rounded edges on the spine and choil. A honyaki blade, the hamon is a beautiful wavy line extending out of the choil almost to the tip of the blade
A Shir knives handle is always something unique and special and the octagonal wa handle on this blade features an extreme tapering from the butt to the ebony ferrule. Constructed out of stabilised birch burl with amethyst gemstone and silver spacers, the handle feels amazing and balances the blade perfectly.
Overall an amazing piece of functional art and a delight to work with.
