200mm forged geomertry gyuto.
Lovely forged geometry classic height Gyuto, in pure iron clad 1.2442. Water quenched.
Forged geometry is forging a large difference in thickness between the spine and the edge, The principle is to allow thinner lower geometry whilst maintaining a break in angle, so the narrow bevel on these cuts with incredibly low friction combined with a decent amount of weight , thickness and stiffness. It is also a joy to maintain on the stones.
This one comes with a nice kasumi from jns 1k and the edge will have a tickle on a natural. This steel with a water quench is lovely very hard , easy to debur, surprisingly tough for its hardness, but this is a hard very thin edge tool so can chip on bone, grit, other steel etc, Tune the edge for your use.
This is iron, carbon can rust , becomes nice and stable with a patina.
