Indian Summer - 10" Damascus - Gyuto - Pattern - Wavy Handle

“Indian Summer” 10in (250mm) gyuto chef knife. Unseasonably hot notes of amber and autumn set this unique blade apart from the rest. A knife like this sings spicy as the summer and sweet as molasses. Includes the sleek walnut saya shown. ⠀

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 unique appearance and protects the hard 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.

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. Total length of the knife is 15.19” (386 mm). ⠀
