Glow

A medium size gyuto with a chatoyant handle

A signature gyuto in a medium size, with a very chatoyant handle of Tasmanian Blackwood. Similar to koa, it has almost a very holographic look when rotating in light, but has more of a gold color. This is one of the tightest figures in a handle material I’ve worked with.
