Watchmaker's Son - 210mm (8.25in) Damascus Gyuto Chef Knife

“Watchmaker's Son” 210mm (8.25in) Damascus gyuto chef knife. “There is no future. There is no past. Do you see? Time is simultaneous, an intricately structured jewel that humans insist on viewing one edge at a time, when the whole design is visible in every facet.”--Dr. Manhattan. The powerful blue hero of comic book fame inspired this timely chef's tool. A monument of clockwork cogs, gears, and a hammered Damascus blade which ripples across time stands behind the radiant blue skull of a thoughtful philosopher. 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.⠀
