Gesshin Ittetsu 240mm White #2 Hon-Kasumi Wa-Gyuto

This Gesshin Ittetsu 240mm White #2 Hon-Kasumi Wa-Gyuto comes with a ho wood octagonal handle and matching saya. The sides of this knife have a misty white polish and the core steel can be seen in a slightly more polished finish near the edge. When visiting Ittetsu last year, we saw this kind of finish on some knives in their workshop and asked if we could have some made. The knife is also on the thinner side of what we normally see with hand forged clad knives. The profile and grind are very nice and the polish is really fascinating.
