Suminagashi Padauk Gyuto 193mm

Thin, light, and truly stunning from tip to handle, this custom gyuto by bladesmith Alex Bazes features a hand forged, suminagashi-clad san mai blade with Takefu Shiro 2 carbon steel core. Tapering from 2.4mm at the spine above the heel to just 0.85mm an inch from the tip, with a razor sharp edge and incredibly thin bevel geometry, there's no wonder the entire knife weighs a mere 4.3oz / 122g. Dressed in a beautiful and bold piece of African Padauk that is fastened with a single copper pin, the comfortably sculpted, tall and thin octagonal handle is accented with an heirloom-fit, hand-hammered copper bolster.

The Story

Originally from Westchester County, New York, Alexander Bazes has been living and working outside of Kyoto, Japan, training under master bladesmiths from Kyoto and Osaka at every opportunity while honing his own techniques at his small, one-man shop. A dedicated craftsman focused on mastering each subtlety of an ancient craft, Alexander's work is continually evolving and we could not be more impressed by the work he is producing today. We're proud to offer Bazes Blades here on Eatingtools.
