    240x54mm Gyuto. 1018/1095 sanmai. This is my interpretation of a workhorse. Wanting to balance at the pinch, a longer, robust handle was made from Ironwood using split oak dowel construction. OAL is 17.25". I can shorten then handle to reduce length upon request, but this will of course exaggerate the weight forward a small bit.

    Kurouchi finish with kasumi. Hamaguri grind. Does have an actual secondary edge that is damn near close to the blade geometry. Very thin edge. Polished and sharpened on some of my various Japanese Natural Stones.

    .140" spine above heel
    .125" at the middle
    .071" measured 1.25" behind tip to measure the flat

    $625 shipped anywhere in continental US.
