Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon - 10in Damascus Gyuto - Dragonscale - Wavy Handle

"Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" 10in (254mm) Damascus gyuto chef knife. Emblazoned into the crimson western-style handle on this knife is a prowling tiger in black print. Proud, majestic, and fierce, the crouching tiger imbues all of those elements into this powerful chef's blade. The tigers (one on each side of the handle) are crouching in plain sight. Can you find the dragon? Therein lies the real power. This knife features my signature wavy texture for enhanced hand gripping - especially useful when the hands of the blade are wet. 

The blade is a modern take on a classic Japanese knife. The gyuto inspired blade is made from VG-10 steel core clad with layers of stainless for durability (and it looks awesome). The folded layers of stainless are what give the blade it’s dragon scale appearance, and just like scales, the folded layers protect the inner core of the knife.

The handle is a hybrid style that makes it extremely comfortable to use, no matter your knife grip preference. An ambidextrous recess at the bolster area improves pinch grip comfort and stability. The full handle also provides plenty of space for a standard grip. The unique wavy texture enhances the grip, especially when wet or greasy.
