Classic gyuto with a refresh on an older theme

A new take on a classic theme I’ve done in the past. It features a straight-forward, flat gyuto profile with a medium grind. The handle is a take on an older theme I did on my first Western style hidden tang handle. I had tried the wood to micarta spacer to wood look before, but the lines weren’t as refined as I would’ve liked.

I wanted to try that look again but after I learned a bit more on how to do the handles well. Here we are. Hopefully it works better this time.

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).
