Koa Gyuto 210mm

We are pleased to present a versatile, utile gyuto crafted by our newest knifemaker, Dan Bidinger. Made from A2 steel, this 210mm / 8.3” blade features a hard, sharp edge below Dan's superb, convex and thin edge geometry, the high-performance steel alloy offering good corrosion resistance, more than most carbon steels due to chromium content. A strong, well-rounded blade spine tapers to a pointed and very thin tip for detailed work, with the sculpted blade spine adding further comfort in any grip. The nature of the hardened A2 tool steel creates a unique shimmer and beautiful finish on the nicely polished, coffee etched surface. For a tough, every-day kitchen tool, this gyuto is lightweight, well balanced, imparting a natural feel, that of an extension of the chef's hand, while at work. The handle is handsomely sculpted from koa wood and complimented by a smooth black micarta bolster, providing a combination of distinct facets in a Western profile that sits comfortably in the hand.

The Story

Admired by fellow culinary knifemakers for his clean designs, utilitarian profiles, refined geometry, and outstanding fit and finish, Sequim, Washington artisan Dan Bidinger crafts one-of-a-kind chef knives for the home and professional chef. A self-taught knifemaker over the past half a decade, Dan has immersed himself in the artisan community to learn the nuances of what makes a high-performance tool for the kitchen, developing his own design style and crafting sleek, purpose-built knives from a variety of steels. An emphasis on precision bevel geometry and compound grinds has gained Dan a following by chefs who prefer a Western-style blade with aggressive tips, long, thin edges, and laser-like cutting styles.
