These beautiful gyutos from HHH knives are made with AEB-L with HRC of 61. Here is a note from Randy:
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 there 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 a 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.
240mm on the edge.
Height will be approx. 49mm at the heel.
Blade thickness will be approx 2.5 mm above the heel tapering to the tip.
Overall length is approx 14.5″

Contoured Stabilized woods with 3 stainless pins securing.
