White Aramith Gyuto 240mm

Dressed in polished white Aramith-produced phenolic resin, the same material and manufacturer of the world's most acclaimed billiard balls, this is the latest one-of-a-kind chef knife handmade in Austria by bladesmith Benjamin Kamon. Benjamin's hybrid shield-style wa handle rendition begins in the front with four distinct faces including two flat side facets, transitioning steadily to a rounded triangular shape at the rear, comfortable and natural in the hand, the Aramith capped by titanium end caps in his concave, "oil-slick" patinated finish. The handle is removeable via a retention bolt. At the business end of this stunning tool Benjamin has forged 1.2519 carbon steel into a 240mm / 9.4" workhorse blade with relatively short, convex primary bevels that retain strength and rigidity toward the heel for the more demanding work while slimming toward a needle-like tip for precision slices and delicate cuts. Balance, both in the hand, and functionally in every sense of the word, is what Benjamin's work exemplifies, and this knife is a wonderful example. A custom saya is included.
