Ronin's Gold - 10in (254mm) Damascus Gyuto - Raindrop - Smooth Handle

"Ronin's Gold" 10in (254mm) k-tip Damascus gyuto chef knife. The perfect chef knife for the kitchen samurai, inspiration for "Samurai's Gold" derives from my admiration of beautiful traditional katanas and the craftsmanship that went into the folded steel blades and cord wrapped handles. Cord wrapped handles look amazing but are not practical in the kitchen due to their clean-up difficulty. Using shimmering gold leaf flake inlaid into blue-dyed and stabilized maple, I recreated the beauty of the katana handle. The ripples on the blade show off each layer of the elegantly folded and forged steel that made the samurai’s katana such a formidable melon slicer.

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.
