Pluma de Las Muertas - Gyuto K-tip 10in Chef's Knife - Feather Damascus

Since this is a custom order, you can request a custom color for the skulls and wood.

“Pluma de Las Muertas” 10in (250mm) k-tip gyuto chef knife. This amazing gyuto is the perfect chef knife for the dia de los muertos theme lover. The handle was created starting with a slab of black dyed and stabilized maple. I inlaid some cool sugar skull designs into the wood and filled them with pink resin. Then I covered that with clear resin to display the skulls and wood in all their awesomeness. The herringbone pattern damascus blade can represent many things. You could see a skeletal pattern, the teeth of a saw blade, or the plumes of a feather.⠀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.
