Doberman Forge 52100 Nakiri 210mm. Gabe Mabry is the man behind Doberman Forge, a small blacksmith shop located in Albemarle, North Carolina. He named his shop after his amazing, late family pet, a courageous guard dog as well as a beloved family companion. Akin to the strengths of the Doberman breed, Gabe strives to pound the same qualities into his blades: elegance (design), intelligence (making process), attentiveness (attention to detail), loyalty (everlasting). A friend for life, a one-of-a-kind knife! In fact, all the attributes we look for in a handmade knife.
Gabe is a recent winner of the highly prestigious competition, Forged in Fire. This is no game show. Contestants have to do things that normal blacksmiths can only aspire to. Winning this contest is high praise indeed.
We invited Gabe to make us some gyutos to our specifications and those of our customers. This gyuto is the first fruit of that labor (there are three more arriving very soon). It is fashioned from 52100 steel using a mono steel construction. The steel is hardened to 62+ HRC. The blade is full flat ground to .004, or thinner before it is stone sharpened to a 15-degree angle.
We anticipate that these one-off knives will find homes very quickly. So to avoid disappointment get your Doberman now.
