2017 Essencial Series


To put a high performance knife – and one that still has all the charm of a handmade piece – at the rach of every cook, professional or hobbist, has aways been the goal of my Essencial Series and now that we reach the fourth generation of this project, I believe this goal has been fully achieved.

For this new series – that is composed of three different models: 25cm long blade gyuto, 21cm long blade gyuto and 15cm long blade petty – I decided to keep the excellent k100 steel after the great results of last Essencial series and  can safely say that it gives these knives one of the best cost x benefit, performancewise. As if this alone was not enough, you will also benefit from the pré-launch discount, that has already became a tradition since the first Essencial series and that goes from 15% to 25%!

– Gyuto with 25cm long blade: US$ 165.00 – PRE-LAUNCH PRICE: US$ 140.00!

– Gyuto with 21cm long blade: US$ 140.00 – PRE-LAUNCH PRICE: US$ 105.00!

– Petty with 15cm long blade: US$ 110.00 – PRE-LAUNCH PRICE: US$ 90.00!

And buying a set of gyuto and petty, the discount is even bigger!

– Gyuto with 25cm long blade + Petty: US$ 275.00 – PRE-LAUNCH PRICE: US$ 205.00!

– Gyuto with 25cm long blade + Petty: US$ 250.00 – PRE-LAUNCH PRICE: US$ 185.00!

Obs.: Shipping not included. Worldwide shipping cost: US$ 20.00.

And you can choose betwwen clear or dark imbuia wood – wich I think looks great in both colors – or brown Celeron, a very strong and water resistant synthetic material that is great for the professionals looking for a practical handle option.

Also, you can choose between a kydex sheath – the perfect carry option for the pros – or a wooden box that would make this knife even a more impressive gift.

Overall, I will make 100 knives of this series, 50 gyutos in both sizes and 50 pettys  – AND THE PRE-LAUNCH PRICES ARE VALID ONLY TO THE FIRST 25 ORDERS.

Payment can be done by Paypal at the time of the order and delivery will be in 30-60 days according to the line of orders.

So… if you have been willing to get one of my knives in your kitchen, this is the time!

If you already own one, don´t miss the chance to expand your arsenal!

And if you know a cook who deserves a gift like this, nothing will make him/her happier!

My oven has been fixed!

If the oven works well, its because I uncoiled the heater coil. If it doesn’t, its all Emilcio’s fault.

– Japanese inspired wrapped or slabs of imbuia wood: US$ 80.00
