Autumn Oscura - 210mm (8.25in) Damascus Gyuto Chef Knife

“Autumn Oscura” 210mm (8.25in) Damascus gyuto chef knife. ⁠A brilliant pillar of variegated metal leaf populates the bulk of the durable wa-style handle on this luscious blade. Through each facet of the clear octagonal form, rustic oranges, browns, and reds shine through. At the boundary of the metal leaf and the clear resin pool at the butt of the handle, a pile of red maple leaves lies just out of plain sight, obscured by the metal leaf. 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.⠀
