Instagram Special - Gesshin Ginga 240mm White #2 Gyuto w/ Dresden Codex Laser Etched Saya

  • The Gesshin Ginga line is a custom line we have produced for us exclusively.  These knives are very thin and light and have great fit and finish.  The spine and choil are rounded and polished.  The white #2 steel (carbon steel) is very finely grained and hardened to about 61HRC.  These knives take a great edge, sharpen easily, resist chipping well, and have great cutting performance due to their awesome geometry.

    The Gesshin Ginga knives are exceptional white #2 knives for both professional and home use.  They have a great profile and great geometry.  Thanks to their thin grind, you will find that these knives resist wedging in foods and make your cutting tasks a lot easier.

    The engraving on this saya comes from the Dresden Codex, quite literally the second oldest surviving piece of writing from the Americas. It is one of only four codices to have survived the systematic destruction of Maya manuscripts at the hands of Catholic priests during the Spanish colonization of current-day Central America and Southern Mexico. Our team member Steve recreated the images on page 56 of the codex, which we highly recommend browsing through.

    *Please note the horizontal "scratches" on the blade are not actually scratches on the blade, but rather scratches in the protective coating on the blade, which helps protect it from damage in storage and transit. This should be removed prior to use with acetone. When removed, those scratches wil also disappear.
