New Compact Essencial Gyuto

This is the first proto I made for the shorter Essencial Gyuto and it has a 15cm (6″) blade. Its handle is jacarandá violeta and the blade steel is 1070 as all other Essencials.

This is probably the only Essencial with this blade size since the standard sizes for the Essencial Gyuto are 17, 21 and 25cm and it will be a great tool in the hands of the cooks who prefer a more compact tool.

This knife is availabile for immediate delivery and the price is US$ 145.00, plus shipping (US$ 14.50 worldwide).

New Essencials


For those who don remember, my Essencial series was composed of semi-handmade knives and was released a couple years ago as an option for those looking for a good knife that was more affordable and with a shorter delivery time thatn my 100% handmade knives. Anyway, the only operations that are done outside my shop are the profile cutiing of the blades, with is done on a laser cutter, and the rough machining of the handles. Everything else – the heat treatment, the grinding of the blades, assembling and finishing operatiosn is done by me in my shop.

These two knives, a gyuto wth a 21cm (roughly 8 1/4″) long blade and a petty with a 15cm (6″) long blade were totally redesigned and have more elgant profile as wella as thicker 1070 steel blades (3mm), making them stiffer and improving the knifeś balance.

At first, my idea was to release first just the gyuto but I got several requests for a smaller knife to make a pair so the petty is also being released now. These two models are more than enough for most chores found in the kitchen, making a perfect pair.Costing just a little more than half of the prices of my fully handmade models, these knives offer a great cost x benefit ratio, being perfect for home cooks, students and also as a backup set for pros and if you are fast, you can get with a great introductory price:

21cm long blade gyuto with imbuia root handle (like in the pic above):

Standard price: US$ 175.00 – INTRODUCTORY PRICE: US$ 155.00

(A felt lined leather pouch is included – shipping cost is US$ 14.50 worldwide)

15cm long blade petty with imbuia root handle:

Standard price: US$ 125.00 – INTRODUCTORY PRICE: US$ 110.00

(A felt lined leather pouch is included – shipping cost is US$ 14.50 worldwide)

And you get an even better price if you get the pair!


The introductory prices are valid only for the first twenty knives sold individually or as a pair. Delivery time for these knives is 30-45 days but at this moment I have a few pieces finished so rush up, get your now and skip the delivery time!

Damascus Steel Number 154

Unlike the more usual damascus steel patterns, where the layers of different steels stay side by side, in this pattern, they are stacked one on to of each other, creatig a very unique pattern.So far I only used this for a half dozen knives and this is the latest one, a chef with a 16cm blade and imbuia root handle.
