You determine the best knife handle material to suit your needs! Experience has taught us that there’s nothing like digging in and getting started. Even, if you’ve never made a knife before you can try your crafting skills with simple or even makeshift tools! The thrill of carving, grinding, shaping, and buffing your own handle is unbelievably satisfying. Be proud of what you can create even if the end result is less than perfect. The AUS-10 Forged Gyuto chef knife blank comes with a blade blank only, allowing for a design-it-yourself handle made from the material of your choice. We recommend using Micarta, softwood, hardwood, metal, or even paracord! The blade is crafted by folding 2 layers of Japanese Forged Steel over a Japanese AUS-10 steel cutting core with a 60+ Rockwell hardness. Easy to maintain – With superior edge retention the blade will stay ultra-sharp for years to come. When needed the fine, yet tough edge is easy to sharpen. The handle is perfectly balanced. It features a full tang and 3-pin design with 3 sets of pins and a Mosaic center pin included. Mince, slice, and dice with ruthless efficiency. Designed to suit the cutting techniques used by professional Japanese chefs, Katsura knives bring culinary mastery to any kitchen. Ideal gift - Create a custom handle and present as a gift to the best cook in your family. Or buy for your friend or family member who loves carpentry or woodworking. Every knife comes inside a handcrafted gift box. Use and care: Not for chopping bone; do not use on hard surfaces like granite, tile, or glass cutting boards; wash by hand with gentle dish soap, rinse, and dry with a dishcloth; sharpen with a whetstone at an angle of 15 degrees.
