Fusion Design Series Set
The set includes two handmade kitchen knives of 52100 carbon steel. This series fuses the performance and geometry of an Eastern-inspired blade profile with the comfort and beauty of a Western style bolster and handle. The gyuto features a handle of domestic walnut sourced from Zack's farm in Charlottesville, Albemarle County, VA.
The handmade knives are a 6"/152 mm kitchen petty/honesuki and an 8.5"/216 mm chef's knife/gyuto delivered as a set with matching custom leather sheaths. The hexagon handles are secured with brass corby bolts and bolsters to offer a nice weight for the knife to balance at the pinch point. The gyuto weights 8 oz while the honesuki weighs 6 oz. HRC 61.
About the knife steel:
52100 high carbon is an awesome steel alloy for kitchen knives that is often preferred by professional chefs. This steel needs attention and care with every use. Since carbon steels can rust easily, your blade should be wiped dry after every use and never stored in a sheath. It should never be left wet or sitting in a wet sink. Over time, a natural patina colorization will develop over the mustard patina. This is a natural process of oxidization and is a sign of a well-used blade.
Our knives are not intended for, nor will they survive being put into a dishwasher! We offer a full warranty on our knives, however, damage due to negligence (rusting of blade) and or dishwasher use will require a repair fee.
The sheath is intended for traveling with your knife ONLY and should not be used for storage as it will cause rust.
