Very interesting, I suppose the kitchen environment is light duty enough for the Wa construction to last for years. It is also more economical to make. Ive gotta gear up for some Wa handles!

Yep, no trees are being felled in the kitchen... well most kitchens anyway. lol

I think the biggest concern is for the blade itself... how thin it is, the profile, and the edge it can take and hold. The handle just needs to be functional and look nice. It shouldn't be taking any severe shocks like an outdoors/survival style knife might. Well, unless it is something like a cleaver and that's another kettle of fish. lol

Glad you like the knife Benjamin, I am looking forward to evolving this designinto a full on Gyuto. Let me know how you feel the cpm S35-Vn holds up to the kitchen.

Toooo narrow for a 170mm unit....


No no no! I assume this is not meant to be a gyuto. For a slicer I'd say perhaps even less width.

I have a cpm S35-Vn gyuto and I think it holds up great but I'm just a hobby home cook.
