Japanese Gyota Style Chef Knife


Recommended Posts

Here is a japanese styple chef knife that I completed recently.



Don Hanson’s W2 with Hamon

277mm blade length

413 mm total length

1.75mm at the spine above the heal tapering to .8mm at the spine about an inch from the tip

50mm tall at the heal

The thickness behind the edge was .007-.009 before final sharpening on an edge pro

Balance right under makers mark.

Wa Handle of stabilized redwood burl and African Black wood

Hamon is hard to see in first two pics but I was able to get a pic of a section of the hamon in the third pic.

Stunning, very nice work.

Let not the swords of good and free men be reforged into plowshares, but may they rest in a place of honor; ready, well oiled and God willing unused. For if the price of peace becomes licking the boots of tyrants, then "To Arms!" I say, and may the fortunes of war smile upon patriots
