Blenheim Bog Oak Gyuto 220mm

A unique and limited offering from the Blenheim Forge bladesmiths, this 220mm / 8.66" gyuto features a san mai blade clad in homemade 120-layer pure nickel and mild steel damascus, with a sharp, thin edge of blue paper carbon steel. Tapering steadily to a fine tip, the versatile blade shape rocks beautifully on the board and stands 57mm tall at the heel, where the knife balances, to provide a high-grind and very thin edge that does not sacrifice strength. Bog oak, dating back 5500 years, forms the octagonal handle which tapers toward the aluminum ferrule, filling your hand and providing a natural, comfortable grip. A handmade fumed oak saya is included.
