240mm Gyuto in Stainless Clad Aogami 1 with Ebony and horn handle.
Hand made in Sakai forged by dentoukougeishi master smith Kenji Togashi and expertly ground by his son. Stainless clad aogami 1 is a less common combination as it is more challenging to work, but it offers a great combination of the aogami 1 carbon steel's fine edge formation and long edge life with the stainless steel's ease of use.
These are super easy to sharpen with a long edge life and smooth cutting feel with nicely finished corners. Slightly larger than usual geometry for a Sakai gyuto, but still following that style. Macasser ebony and light colored horn handle are a nice compliment.
Handle ferrule color varies from one in photo from all blonde to blonde and dark streaked
