This knife is a White #2 Honyaki Western Gyuto with ebony scales. This was a custom order for our Gesshin Ginga Line. Geometry-wise, its a bit thicker than the stainless Gesshin Ginga gyutos we sell, but this is to be expected with a forged knife like this. It has a spectacular taper from handle to tip, and is nicely ground behind the edge. As pretty as it is, this knife is made to be used.

Just as with many other traditional and cultural products in Japan,
Japanese knives offer simple, yet sophisticated beauty and quality to their users. It can take some time to learn how to handle these knives correctly, but it is a rewarding experience.
