Hokiyama Sakon Bokusui AUS10 ROU-Wave Damascus 240mm (9.5") Gyuto knife with Burnt pattern Urushi lacquered Magnolia Wood octagon handle
This beautiful hand-forged Gyuto knife was made by Hokiyama cutlery from the Tosa province on Shikoku Island of Japan. 240mm long special ROU-Wave Damascus blade (acid etching finish) has AUS10 core steel, heat-treated up to 59-60 HRC. Octagon handle made from natural Magnolia Wood and finished with traditional Japanese Burnt pattern Urushi lacquer.
It seems like a well-balanced medium-weight Gyuto in hand, but it transforms into a highly accurate laser as you start cutting with it. It was sent the same day I purchased it, which is excellent service.
