”Scamp Grouper” 10in (250mm) k-tip gyuto chef knife.Fishbone damascus blade with VG10 core and walnut handle with wavy texture for added grip. Includes the sleek walnut saya shown. I named it Scamp Grouper because the coloration of the blade and saya remind me of this fish, combined with the fishbone damascus pattern. I don't make many knives with a plain wood handle, but sometimes clean and simple is good, and I really like the grain and colors of this handle.⠀⠀⠀⠀
The blade is made using VG10 core for the cutting edge 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 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).
