Here is a special western handled gyuto I have made in Rainbow Damascus san mai . This steel is called Yushoku and it’s made by Takefu special steel company , it’s stainless san mai with copper and brass alloy creating a mokume cladding and a vtoku Carbon steel core . Vtoku is the Takefu’ s version of blue steel , it’s very pure high carbon steel with added tungsten for wear resistance .  Forging of this steel requires very precise temperature and hammer control
Hand rubber 1200 grit finish ,
i have etched the blade to bring the contrast of the core steel and the cladding , some alloy banding can be seen at the core steel
