Tobias Heldqvist Gyuto 244mm 26c3 Wrought Iron Ni Foil CladTobias Heldqvist
This Tobias Heldqvist Gyuto 244mm is forged in 26c3 steel and hardened to 63HRC. You would have to class this blade as a bit of a workhorse, but it does feature an aggressive tapper (3.8mm above the heal, 1.8mm about an inch before the tip) and its nice and thin behind the edge (0.2mm). The balance point is precisely on Tobias's makers mark and feels great in a pinch.
The profile features a very decent flat section, about half the blade. The edge finishes in subtle, but effective curve. Combined with the initial flat of the blade it's a great package and feels lovely to work with.
The blad is clad in a beautiful wrought iron nickel foil cladding. It's a beautiful rustic, yet polished combination. The spine and choil are beautifully rounded off and make for a very comfortable in hand feel.
Finally, the handle. Tobias has given this blade an octagonal thuya burl handle with a reindeer antler ferrule and polished tin and black G10 spacer.
Tobias's work is special, its unique, performance is up there with the best and the blades are simply stunning.
