260mm forged geometry Gyuto
Forged is historic grade wrought iron, 1.2442 core , this time with water quench , which is working wonderfully with this steel, a tad more refined grain than my oil quenched 1.2442, and glassy hard.
This one is right on the money geometry wise with mid heavy weight feel, no flex and nice thin forged geometry. Ive been bluing the bolsters for a while and this time flushed the blues into my logo, this one has a purple sheen, goes well with the blue dyed elder from cap. Wood is a particularly dark gorgeous figured ironwood. One of the few wood that’s requires no stabilisation , it’s naturally stable.
