Ganymede

Wide K-Tip Gyuto with a special Carbon Fiber handle

A flat, wide gyuto with a thin overall grind. This blade is meant for someone who really prefers push/pull cuts.

The handle shape is one I’ve been working on for a long time, refining the lines and facets more with each iteration. To be quite honest it’s one of the most difficult shapes to pull off because of the shallow angles between each facet; there’s simply no room for error. The handle material is carbon fiber from FatCarbon, and it’s gorgeous. This is some of the nicest, cleanest CF I’ve used (a lot of them are….. not great.). Over time the copper in the material will develop a patina with use as well as the blade.

Make sure you are aware of the care required for carbon steels (it’s straight-forward, just wipe it after cutting something, hand wash, and wipe dry before storing. It will get a patina through normal use).
