- verified customerWhat an absolutely beautiful knife~!
I needed a 240 Gyuto with strong backbone and this one has a serious spine. Heavy, yet well-balanced. The spine tapers greatly to a very sharp tip, I love the profile of this knife.
I wanted Blue #2 steel, and the heat treat and finish are this blade are amazing. Takes and keeps a wicked sharp edge. This knife does require attention and maintenance as the beautiful satin finish is quite reactive, as is the edge. Mine has developed a very nice patina, I love it. This is an heirloom quality masterpiece forged by a true master of Blue #2 steel. Mine came with a custom bog oak handle from Isiah Schroeder, a perfect match. I cannot comment OOTB sharpness, as I ordered the service and mine arrived razor sharp ~ Thanks Mark! I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase.
