A well-balanced extension of your hand. This Gyuto style chef knife is a BEAST when it comes to versatility. Ground to a wicked sharp edge, textured with my own version of the classic "Kuroichi" finish.  Balanced right at the ricasso area, the weight makes it an absolute pleasure to work with. 

I've been fascinated with iconic cultural figures, and there's just something about the Samurai Kabuto (helmet) that I love.


Encapsulating ideals of intensity, commitment, & discipline into a single form - it's not just a pretty embellishment on a good knife. Rather it's a reminder of these ideals to live up to. Fitting that it goes on a Chef Knife, don't you think?
