D'ohmascus - 210mm (8.25in) Damascus Gyuto Chef Knife

“D'ohmascus” 210mm (8.25in) Damascus gyuto chef knife. A one-of-a-kind knife and throwback to one of the longest running classic television series, the original family man Homer Simpson stands on top of a glowing uranium rod (occupational negligence) with a sprinkled donut in one hand and and remote in the other. We don't know what to make of the blood at the bolster... Includes sleek walnut saya shown.

This uniquely all-consuming knife features a durable wa-style octagonal polyurethane resin handle, replete with darkness in the company of three sinister skulls. 

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.⠀
