220x52 Kasumi

750.00

This is a wrought iron gyuto with 1.2519 core. This steel is similar to aogami #2. This knife has a Kasumi finish done by me on Japanese natural stones. Kasumi finishes are not very common among western makers. They take a lot of time, but the end result is absolutely worth it. It also provides an easily thinned knife. This handle is true Lignum Vitae and an African Blackwood ferrule. Lignum Vitae has historically been used for marine bearings. It is now an endangered species. This block of wood was harvested from deadfall prior to it being added to the CITES registry.
Disclaimer: This wrought iron is extremely old and has large silica deposits in the iron which are naturally occurring and sometimes this results in small voids in the iron. This is the nature of old wrought iron and part of what gives it its beauty.
