    This gyuto has been made to impress in all aspects!

    The blade is made from cryo treated 52100 (high carbon ball bearing steel) hardened to Rc62-63, it's tough yet easy to sharpen.

    The blade's surface has been treated to a triple layer mustard patina for aesthetics as well as for a reduction in (negative) oxidation and reactivity. This steel isn't so reactive that it needs this to be done, I simply wanted to try something different and went for it. The result is a unique one of a kind look that has some worthwhile function to it. This is the 1st Martell knife that I've made for sale with a forced patina and it's also the 1st knife that my daughters both tried to get me to keep. They love the pattern on the blade, they call it "marble".

    The wa octagonal handle is made from figured AZ Ironwood paired with blond marbled buffalo horn on both ends. The butt cap is rounded.

    The handle has been sealed with 9 coats of a varnish/oil finish.
