Diamondback Burl - Gyuto K-tip 10in Chef's Knife - Snake Scale Damascus

“Diamondback Burl” 10in (250mm) k-tip gyuto chef knife. I really like the way this handle came out. The shape is octagonal on a full tang. The diamond pattern texture cut into the opposing faces gives it a unique appearance and feel. The angled bolster leads your thumb down onto the blades surface for a comfortable pinch grip. Handle is made from dyed and stabilized buckeye burl. This handle is a little thinner in profile than my normal handles, measuring about 0.8in thick. The dragonscale blade pattern is a perfect complement for the diamondback handle texture. 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 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 10” (254 mm) long, 2.31” (59 mm) tall, & 0.1” (2.5 mm) thick at the spine. The total length of the knife is 15.19” (386 mm). 

The gyuto inspired blade is made from VG-10 steel core clad with layers of stainless for durability (and it looks awesome). Our handles are a hybrid style that makes them 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.
