    Here is a CTS-XHP 245mm kiritsuki tip gyuto I completed a few months ago (and forgot to post) I made for a Chef in Austin, Texas. Dyed flame box elder Burl handle with G10 trim and carbon fiber bolsters. It had a Moran-ish style Bowie handle configuration and is seriously ergonomically comfortable. XHP is an absolutely amazing cutlery steel and makes some terrific knives that the feedback form my pro chef customers confirm as terrific edge holding and sharpenability.

    And, as usual, Iron Chef Morimoto's handwriting adorns the blade.
