Suminagashi Gyuto (chef knife) Desert Ironwood
This beautiful handmade Suminagashi Gyuto (chef knife) is presented with a stunning Arizona Desert Ironwood handle. Desert Ironwood is one of the hardest and densest woods in the world Desert Iron wood has a beautiful unique colouring of golden brown and dark streaks which takes a stunning polish. The blades is constructed using the Japanese technique of Suminagashi (floating Ink or ink marbling) giving the outer layer a texture with a San Mai (three layer) Construction. The outer layers of Damascus steel clad either side of the cutting edge (core). The San mai construction, a three layer of laminated steel, folded and forge welded over and over to give the Suminagashi effect. VG10 Steel core gives a high performance razor like sharpness. Easy to sharpen yet tough enough to withstand a professional kitchen environment. Each knife is handmade and finished to an extremely high standard in my forge/studio in Kilkenny Ireland.
