Gyuto knife, SRS13 steel, damascus finish - Nigara
This product is currently sold out.
Nigara Hamono has a excellent reputation for creating one of a kind knives. We are very excited to be stocking these knives. In the words of me ‘they are well nice.’
SHAPE: Gyuto. Literally translates as "cow sword", this is Japan's answer to the western chef knife.
STEEL: SRS13. This is a new breed of powder steel capable of taking and keeping an amazing edge while being slightly less chippy than some of its cousins.
FINISH: Damascus or suminigashi. This type of finish is made by creating a Kitaeji; which is produced by repeatedly folding/stacking then compressing two different steels until they create a laminated pattern. This can then be manipulated in various ways to produce the maker’s desired pattern effect. This material is then clad around the core metal of the blade as an elaborate protective layer for the core steel - thus giving the knife a beautiful and striking appearance.
HANDLE: Octagonal Ebony handle with a silver spacer and a Buffalo horn ferrule.
LENGTH: 210mm in length.
MAKER: Nigara Hamon - Japan
BEST FOR: Top of the line knives in crazy steels.
SAUNDERS SAYS: “Blimey these are all rather nice.”
These knives are hand-forged so there may be slight variations in measurements and finishes.
