Dead Presidents - 210mm (8.25in) Damascus Gyuto Chef Knife

No reviews

“Dead Presidents” 210mm (8.25in) Damascus gyuto chef knife. This formidable chopper features our classic Blood Money combo with alternating layers of blood, shredded cash, and a richly domed skull gazing out the butt of the octagonal handle face. Dead Presidents being a slang term for large denominations of cash bills, this knife is perfectly named for the perfect job. Includes the sleek walnut saya 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 8.25” (210mm) long, with a convex surface grind.⠀
