This Red Rock Tools chef knife is fashioned from 52100 tool steel. AISI 52100 is a high carbon tool steel containing low quantities of manganese and chromium to improve hardening. It is used extensively in the manufacturing of ball bearings and in applications where corrosion is less of an issue. 52100 tool steel is considered an ideal, affordable alloy offering a very fine grain with superior edge retention. The knife is a mono steel construction using a stock removal method.
ABS Journeyman Bladesmith Steve Grosvenor has built a very interesting and great looking tall gyuto
. It measures in at an impressive 54mm at the heel with a shorter than normal edge length of 205mm. The edge profile is a very gentle curve starting almost at the heel. Rock cutters are going to love this profile. The knife is a true laser which is ground super thin all over.
The 210mm gyuto is without a doubt the most popular knife among home cooks. It is the perfectly sized blade for use in the home kitchen where cutting board real estate is at a premium. It possesses a lightness and nimble feel that allows for its use in all kinds of cutting, slicing, and chopping scenarios. Add in the extra blade height and you have an extremely capable kitchen tool that looks as great as it performs.
