This is by far the longest article I have written so far and it is all about how I design gyutos and what I understand makes a good kitchen knife. Let me know what you think.

This was a 'custom order' 35 mm tallm 150 mm long petty for a friend of mine and a first knife I made from the 1.2442 steel (somewhat similar to blue #1). It turned out so well, that I may be doing more of them in the future. Here is a short article how it was done.

This was a bit of a special project - 210 gyuto from Niolox steel with western style handle and a leather sheath that I gifted to a local chef. Have a look how it was done and how it turned out.
