Purple Rain - 10in K-tip Gyuto - Raindrop Damascus

Notify me when this product is available:

“Purple Rain” 10in (250mm) k-tip gyuto chef knife.  (Named by @foodoverfame406 ) The raindrop damascus blade with VG10 core is mated to a stunning multicolor dyed and stabilized buckeye burl handle. 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 dragon scale appearance, and just like scales, the folded layers protect the inner core of the knife.

The deep black colored handle with scale patterns 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.
