Hello everyone. As some of you may already know, I have been working on a “secret” project and its time to share this with the world!!!
I have been working closely with the one of the oldest knife manufactures of kitchen cutlery in the USA. Designing and refining a HHH Production 240mm gyuto. I chose AEB-L Stainless steel, because its a great Stainless steel for kitchen knives. The profile and blade grinds are based off my custom 240mm western handle chef knife. This part of the project has taken considerable time and efforts. But it was worth it. As that will result in all around better knives! This manufacturer has been making kitchen knives for over 100 years. Not to mention they're doing some amazing stuff currently. That combined with the attention to detail and refining the product to meet my standards. I know these knives will be a home run.
These blades will be heat treated to my specs with an RC of 60/61. They will be ground full height with distal taper, thin behind the edge and will be great all around cutters. These knives will have my western handle profile and will have beautiful hand picked exotic wood handles.
The blade specs are as follows:
