195mm gyuto CPM 154CM

Discussion in 'Houston Edge Works' started by Pennman88, Jun 2, 2016.

    Finished this up and will deliver on Saturday. 195mm CPM 154CM gyuto with a classic profile and handle of spalted tamarind, wenge bolsters, and G10 trim. Handmade mosaic from copper/brass/steel. I'll post photos of the custom saya later.

    Because of the shorter blade length, I had to get weight off the handle. I hollowed out the handle bilaterally to remove metal and then tapered the handle posteriorly from the mosaic pin back to the butt. This moved the balance point to the front of the bolster and makes this blade beautifully balanced and nimble.
