An eye-catching piece of functional art you can use in the kitchen daily. A 10 inch (260mm) k-tip Gyuto made of a San-mai (3 layer) laminate. 52100 high carbon steel for the core, clad in a hundred-layer random pattern Damascus.
There’s a nickel/copper/nickel shim between the core steel and cladding that prevents carbon migration and galvanic corrosion between the materials.
The handle was sculpted from 7,400+ year old bog oak I stabilized in the studio, laminated with copper-infused carbon fiber to match the pattern-welded blade. Finally, this Gyuto is all held together by a copper corby bolt and pin, as well as six blind screws inside the handle. The knife is stronger than it needs to be, and should last more than a lifetime.
