Curly Koa Western Gyuto

From Ben Tendick of BRT Bladeworks comes this 8" gyuto in AEB-L stainless steel with black G10-lined curly koa handle and homemade copper and carbon fiber pins. Like the pins themselves each element of a BRT Bladeworks chef knife is shaped, finished and assembled solely by Ben. He cryogenically treats the .098" thick high-performance AEB-L blade steel with liquid nitrogen to a hardness of 62HRC for a durable yet easy-to-sharpen razor edge. An outstanding mid-size kitchen workhorse of superb quality that will fit larger hands especially well.

The Story

Ben Tendick is a self-taught artist, designing and building highly respected chef knives as well as a range of other edged tools at his one-man shop in Eugene, Oregon. Gentle curves in just the right places and homemade copper and carbon fiber pins result in Ben's signature handle design that fills the hand and makes manipulation of the razor edge he applies to the blade effortless and enjoyable. Ben performs each step of the process himself, from shaping wood handles by hand to cryogenically treating blade steel, and you can feel the passion and dedication that goes in to each piece as soon as you handle a BRT Bladeworks knife.
