Cross-Cut Oak Gyuto 215mm

Dressed in striking cross-cut oak sculpted to a comfortable shield-style form with facets atop and rounded grip below, this 215mm / 8.5" gyuto by Austrian bladesmith Martin Huber is one impressive and versatile chef's tool. The size, balance, and geometry combine to deliver a knife to rule the kitchen and do it all no matter how large or small the meal at hand. Go mai (five layer) blade construction, clad in satin-finished stainless steel over pure nickel and a core of 1.2519 carbon steel, results in a thin, hard, and razor-sharp cutting edge beneath superbly shaped convex bevels that stretch forward to a pointed, needle-like tip for detail work. A flat section toward the heel and subtle curvature to the tip allow the blade to rock nicely for chopping on the board, while maintaining a low enough tip position for precise slices.

The Story

Introduced to metalsmithing as a mere toddler, Martin Huber, son and grandson to multiple blacksmiths, crafts handmade chef knives at his shop in Austria not far from where he grew up. After gaining experience with larger employers post-graduation, Martin began his own venture in 2016 and has been building handmade cutting tools since. An eye for culinary knives and a desire to put unique objects into the hands of chefs everywhere, Martin and his two employees design kitchen cutlery from house-made steels, ranging from unique mosaic damascus pattens to ku-mai construction and everything in between, sometimes collaborating with other makers, and always producing unique, one-of-a-kind object. Martin Huber knives are built to use, combining captivating material combinations and design styles with purpose-driven geometry and finishes.
