K-Tip Gyuto - Stabilised Maple Burl
New for 2020 - a Japanese inspired western design, the Gyuto. This general purpose chef knife has a generous, rounded handle, a rounded spine and finger guard/choil for comfort. This functional kitchen tool has brass pins with a mosaic pin and a black paper Micarta bolster up front with a carbon-fibre pin. The main part of the handle is in beautifully burled maple wood that has been stabilized and dyed in-house. The stabilizing process impregnates the wood with an extremely durable resin - this makes the wood virtually impervious to water, warping or cracking and a lot more hard-wearing than natural wood. It has a fine geometry from spine to edge and is sharpened to 17 degrees at the edge - this is a real slicer! From light veggie prep, to slicing meat to heavier work like preparing butternut, this all rounder will serve you well.
