Ikeda Gyuto 270mm

Yoshikazu Ikeda is one of the finest smiths in Sakai, Japan. Ikeda has been making knives and swords for over 40 years. In 1988, he was recognized as a dentoukougeishi by the Japanese government and since 2001 he has been the chairman of the association of dentoukougeishi. Dentoukougeishi are highly skilled master artisans recognized by the Japanese government for their commitment to protecting traditional arts and techniques.
The gyuto is modeled after the French pattern chef's knife. Longer and slimmer than the santoku, it is a perfect choice as a general purpose chef's knife. The long blade is needed for the sawing motion required to cut meat and the slim profile keeps the weight low and the balance right. The geometry is perfect for a rocking chop.
This knife is completely hand forged by a true master. The center layer of hard Aogami #1 is clad on both sides with many-layered damascus forged from mild steels (suminagashi), resulting in a keen, long lasting edge. Blue steel has a very keen edge with tremendously long edge holding. A distal taper ensures a perfect balance.

The Wa handle is made in the traditional japanese way by Alexis from couteaux MA, a blacksmith based in montreal we love to work with. It is formed from  waved mapple. 
A buffalo horn ferrule completes the handle
A real masterpiece.
