Bubinga and Copper Gyuto
Using hardened (62-64 HRC) high carbon steel, this S-Grind Gyuto Chef's knife, is finely ground and heat treated in-house. This results in a high-quality kitchen tool, that slices easily through a variety of ingredients.
This blade features what is commonly known as an S-Grind—a deep hollow milled into the blade just above the edge, which creates an S shape when looking down the knife from the heel. This design allows air to get behind the food with every slice, eliminating the suction present on flat ground knives and making quick work of even the most hard-to-cut ingredients, such as onions, potatoes, and cucumbers.
Each knife is hand tuned to find its unique balance point just in front of the bolster, for optimal controllability. Its handle is crafted from figured bubinga that includes both the light sap wood and the rich, red heart wood, which is sanded to a low lustre and oiled for protection. It features a hand-hammered copper inlay. The blade itself is hand-rubbed for a bright finish. This produces a versatile knife that is both functional and attractive. The photos speak for themselves!
Like the entire Nordquist Designs line, this Gyuto knife is of truly heirloom quality. Handcrafted in the British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley from locally-sourced materials, these kitchen tools are made to last generations.
