Oblivion Blades Gyuto (Chefs Knife) 210mm is 4 of 10 blades made, each knife being unique is some way.
Oblivion blades are made in Warners Bay near Newcastle by Jerarmie Heywood a ex-chef and fabricator.
Jerarmie normally makes high end fully custom knives, however this time he has made a small batch of simple knives with high grade materials and Australian wood.
This small batch of knives are made from a high carbon steel called 1095.
Being high carbon this knife is susceptible to rust and will form a patina over time.
Personally I love the look of a patina. It is a sign of quality and will give a unique look to your blade. Which in my opinion sums up Jerarmie’s work. Unique and quality.
Being high carbon it will also perform most kitchen tasks with ease while having great edge retention and ease of sharpening.
The blade has a slight Kuro finish near the Birdseye Myrtle bolster and a burnt Tasmanian oak handle.
I am proud to present a locally made knife with high carbon steel and Australian wood.
*About the handle: This handle is a “custom D” shape handle by Jerarmie suited to right handed. However as a lefty I would say it actually feels great in the hand using a pinch grip due to the unique shape of the handle. My thumb sits perfectly on the top level part of the handle and my fingers tuck underneath on the lower flat part of the handle. It gives a great indexing feeling.
