Suminagashi Gyuto (chef knife) Imbuia
This beautiful handmade Suminagashi Gyuto (chef knife) is presented with a stunning Imbuia wooden handle. Imbuia wood is sometimes called Brazilian Walnut. Imbuia possesses deep rich colours and interesting grain patterns that rival classic cabinet hardwoods. 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.
