This 10.5 inch Gyuto is what you'd call a crazy kitchen sword. A versatile bade that truly shines when it comes to slicing larger ingredients.
A truly unique piece to add to your collection, or the perfect gift for that chef in your life!
Introducing a new texture I carved on the blade flats called "Chiseled Slate".
Coupled with a deep S-Grind, this one is the first of its kind!

FEATURES:
- Blade Steel: AEB-L High carbon stainless steel (61HRC)
- Blade Dimensions: 10.5inches x 2 inches. Double bevel W/ deep "S-Grind"
- Handle Detail: Brass front spacer, Stabilized Box Elder burl, Stabilized Amboyna burl
- Encapsulated Sculpture: Hand sculpted brass Half-jaw Skull



The skull is the perfect "Memento Mori", an old Latin saying that means "remember death". It's not for the sake of morbidity, but rather to instill in us a sense of urgency to live our best lives - a motivation of sorts to power through the fear, insecurity, and complacency that everyone experiences. After all, no one lives forever! This encapsulated sculpture is a reminder to make the most out of our lives!
