Applewood Honyaki Gyuto 188mm

The latest hand-forged gyuto from Emiliano Carrillo’s New Hampshire studio has a simple and beautiful clay-induced hamon line that we cannot take our eyes from. Made from W2 carbon steel, the blade has a heel height of 48mm, a slim and pointed tip, and a sharp, hard, workhorse edge below sturdy, convex bevels making it a versatile and highly capable kitchen workhorse. The D-shape handle carved from applewood is like most of Emiliano’s work; traditional, purposeful, and utilitarian in approach. The handle shape is comfortable and suited for right-handed chefs as your knuckles will perfectly align with the only pronounced carved facet, that extends through to the black buffalo horn bolster, on an otherwise smooth, rounded handle. This gyuto, although typical in properties and uses, is a one-of-a-kind, elegantly constructed culinary tool that will make a well-loved addition to any chef’s arsenal.

The Story

In the early days, Emiliano Carrillo, New Hampshire-based blacksmith and bladesmith, learned to make bloomery iron and carbon steels from base elements collected from the Earth, crafting a furnace from clay, peat moss, and sand in which to combine his ingredients. Focusing on historical reproductions of ancient tools such as swords and spears, reverse engineering their every detail, Emiliano developed a deep, holistic, 'bone-knowing' knowledge of the processes and methods that most inspire him. Now, with the desire to craft functional objects which will be both coveted and used and appreciated daily by their owners, Emiliano's time, in addition to teaching, is dedicated in a large way to the creation of chef knives, each developed using the same historical principals and techniques learned through the years. From modern pattern-welded steels, to house-made tamahagne and oroshigane, and locally reclaimed handle materials, each knife is a work of culinary art.
