Carbon steel gyuto with a traditional octagonal handle shape

Traditional shapes with modern materials. This is a large flat profiled gyuto with an octagonal handle composed of Black Diamond Richlite and seafoam green G10. The Richlite is similar to paper micarta; it’s clean, it’s solid, but there is more of a subtle activity compared to straight paper micarta.

The octagon handle has more of a taper from the front to the rear than most traditional styles.

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).
