250mm wrought iron clad San Mai gyuto in 125sc
This is the first time I am offering wrought iron San Mai with a western handle configuration.
When I contemplated on putting a western handle on a wrought iron San Mai gyuto I believe the cleanliness of the bronze bolster didn’t match with the rustic texture of the wrought iron and I have decided to use Japanese style wa handles only. Recently a custom order gave me the chance to use matching wrought and I wanted to experiment first and couldn’t be happier with the outcome
