Takumi Ikeda 240mm Damascus Gyuto. This knife is made with damascus clad and aogami super core. Mr. Ikeda is an apprentice of Katsushige Anryu and as you can see he makes beautiful knives. The handle is a uniquely finished laquer finish with a beautiful sky blue color.
This knife has the same basic profile as the masamoto ks but the grinds, steel and look of the knife are so much better than the ks. To compare you get a beautiful carbon, damascus clad blade, aogami super steel core, nice semi custom handle, excellent grinds and great fit and finish with rounded spine and choil for less than the ks (which we sell as well). weight: 6.4ozblade length: 252mmtotal length: 397mmspine thickness at base: 3.34mmblade height: 47.22mm
