    250ish mm damasteel kiritsuki tip gyuto with double dyed box elder Burl, malachite, and dyed mammoth tooth bolsters. Custom fitted leather saya. And the face executive chef Anastacia Song made when she slices a hard beet with it at American Cut Midtown by Marc Forgione. This is my ultra high performance super shinogi geometry. This one sold fast. Chef Song wanted a red one.

  9. I totally dig this, different from what you've been making but still instantly recognizable as your work.

    Thanks! I’m making more with this handle profile. It has good ergonomics for racquet grip as well as pinch. Just a different flavor to play with. Why? Because I can!!:p
