This is a pattern welded gyuto, the steels used are 1095/15n20. The pattern used for this knife is a topography pattern or a modified raindrop of sorts. The end result is this organic and beautiful pattern.
This knife has a compound S-grind, which is a hollow along the middle of the blade which aids with food release. Previously, I used a platen that replicated the angle of a 48” wheel for this. As of lately, I have started using a platen that replicates a 36” wheel, I find the slightly deeper hollow creates a more acute apex.
The ferrule of this knife is made of African Blackwood. The spacers of this knife consist of Black G10 and ancient mammoth tooth. The main block of the handle is golden amboyna. Together, these materials flow wonderfully together and compliment the pattern of the steel.
