always wanted to make my own designed gyuto so i contacted Shosui at Takeda (i like his blades and the steel in general so thats why i picked him to work with. and he made the blade after my specs.

i designed this blade as a agressive cutter abit of a gamble how it will feel/perform. i wanted a knife with alot of board contact yet a smal belly betwin the tip and heel. Shosui made the blade abit thinner after speaking to him i wanted him to try make the blade from 2mm at the heel and tappering down to very little, also made it 4mm wider at the base so 56mm, even thou the blade is so thin its very stiff and stil got nice waight due to the AS steel. sending this blade to Mike now for a handle and then a visit to Melampus :)cant wait to try it out.

Whatever is lightest and offers the most porous grip. Phuck the burl & flashy aesthetics... that's for girly men. ;)
