Black Barney - 210mm (8.25in) Damascus Gyuto Chef Knife

“Black Barney” 210mm (8.25in) Damascus gyuto chef knife. The satin-like shadow of a dark past hovers far behind the black t-rex skull at the butt of the knife. In the gulf between them lies a brilliant haze of purple resin, laced with a dazzling smattering of gold leaf flake. The gold floats beyond the haze, teasing the black-skulled purple dinosaur. Even the Damascus blade reflects the scaly visage of the Black Barney skull. Includes the sleek walnut says shown.

The blade is made from VG10 core hardened to 60 HRC. Multiple layers of stainless are forged on both sides of the blade that protect the core and result in the damascus layer pattern. VG10 is a high hardness stainless that doesn’t require the maintenance or care of a carbon steel. VG10 blades should be sharpened with a water stone, synthetic stone, or diamond. Do not use a honing steel on this blade. The edge angle is sharpened to 17 degrees and then stropped to a super sharp finish. The blade is 6” (150 mm) long, with a convex surface grind.⠀
