Gyuto - Yokai II
This Gyuto marked the first knife using the AEBL Steel in San Mai Sumingashi.
The whole time making this knife I was truly excited to see the pattern. It turned out as I was hoping, totally unique and static in composition.
The grind itself is more of a workhorse profile but is very thin for precision cuts as well. Its low compound grind parallel to the edge makes this a breeze to cut anything.
I left the traditional Japanese Kuroichi finish of
contrasting black and steel, for an authentic ancient but modern look.
No knife is the same as they are intended to be unique to their
