Desert Ironwood Gyuto 280mm

At 280mm / 11" this is the largest gyuto from Jelle Hazenberg to date, forged from his typical 22-layer damascus clad san mai with White No.2 core. With excellent weight distribution and a balance point just under an inch from the front of the handle, the long, rocking blade is tall at 58mm and tapers from 3mm wide at the choil to just 1mm an inch from the tip. Thin behind the edge yet built like a workhorse with a convex grind and stunning desert ironwood handle this is a knife any chef will enjoy using no matter how large and demanding the task. A handmade leather saya is included.
