9” (230x50mm) honyaki kiritsuke gyuto Hand forged from W2 high carbon tool steel and features a high polish and very active, unique hamon. The handle is Gabon ebony and features fire blackened and faceted heirloom fit steel fittings, and blue dyed maple burl spacers. Comes with custom storage box.
This knife is pre-owned and has seen some light use, but condition is still excellent, the knife looks great. The only cosmetic concerns are a few very light scuffs/scratches toward the spine. Please see the last photo. These scratches are very shallow and minimal, and only show themselves under certain light angles. They could be polished out fairly easily.
