These are some sweet Takeda 240mm Gyutos with custom handles by Matt Delosso. Measurements vary slightly since each knife is hand made and will be unique with small differences in the shape of the blades. Shosui Takeda is a third generation blacksmith and produce great hand-forged blades and tools such as kitchen knives, hoes, hatchets, etc. Shosui forges blades from the high quality carbon steel, Aogami Super Steel (AS). The blades consist of "AS", forged in its entirety by hand, as it has been done for generations. Each blade holds its edge extraordinarily well and resharpens easily. All his knives have 50/50 edges and octagonal handles so they are good for either right handed or left handed users. You can choose the knife you want using the drop down box ordered 1-4 from left to right. We will remove each option as we sell the knives. Handles are as follows:
1- Spalted Maple Burl handle, M3 Gold ferrule, Nickel Silver and black spacers.
2- Aboyna Burl handle, M3 Lapis and Gold Mokume Gane ferrule, Metal Copper and M3 Gold spacers.
3- Old Growth Flamed Redwood handle, Black Dyed Maple Burl ferrule, Brass spacer.
