Description: Ian Rogers hand builds each knife one-at-a-time without the use of waterjet or laser cutters. He has quickly become one of the most well known names in the culinary knife industry.
The gyuto is modeled after the French pattern chef's knife. Longer and slimmer than the santoku, it is suited to preparation of meat and may be used as a general purpose chef's knife. The long blade is needed for the sawing motion required to cut meat and the slim profile keeps the weight low and the balance just right. Whether slicing onions, chopping vegetables, or portioning meats, this Haburn gyuto is a perfect go-to knife in the kitchen. This petit sized gyuto will be light and nimble while still handling all daily chef knife tasks with ease.
This elegant Japanese-inspired chef's knife is Ian's sole authorship work. The blade is formed from 52100 carbon steel and features a hand rubbed satin finish. 52100 is considered by many knifemakers and knife users to be among the best steels ever used for knives. Makers like Mastersmith Bill Burke, Bob Kramer, and Ed Fowler have shown how incredible this steel can be. This carbon steel takes an incredibly keen edge that just keeps on cutting. The distal tapered blade creates a perfect balance. Because this knife is made from carbon steel, we recommend using camellia oil to avoid rust. A rounded spine and choil ensures the knife will be comfortable even after hours of use.
The handle is formed from curly hawaiian koa wood (Acacia koa). Koa is one of the most desirable exotic woods in the world. The Japanese-inspired half round, half octagonal handle is comfortable for both right and left handed users. It is octagonal at the top and rounded at the base. Many people find this to be the most comfortable of Japanese handle styles. A marble carbon fiber ferrule finishes the Japanese-inspired handle. The knife is well balanced and extremely comfortable to hold. This is a knife you won't want to put down!
Exceptional work throughout!
