This gyuto was forged from a bar of chromium tungsten high carbon steel (1.2519). The blade has a lot of distal taper, the octagonal handle, made from 3000 year old Anglian bog oak, is quite slender giving this knife a "forward" balance very suited to pinch grip.
The steel is not stainless and the wood is a natural material, please see "care &guarantee" section at the bottom of the page before purchase.
Blade length: ca. 215mm
Heel height :ca. 50mm
Handle length: ca. 122mm
