Hirokuni Shirogami1 Gyuto Knife with a 240mm blade.

Yukihiro Sakai is a young talented blacksmith who is not using pre-laminated steel, he is doing that himself. Shirogami1 is the favorite steel for traditional carbon steel knives. The steel is reactive and develops a patina on the exposed butting edge. The cladding is done with some soft iron and it comes with a kurochi finish.

This is quite a slim Gyuto, a good workhorse for those who like a bit longer blade.

The oval handle is made from cherry wood with a plastic ferrule.
