The Gyuto Skate knife is made on commission as a birthday gift for my good friend Niels, who I’ve known since childhood. Skateboarding was our mutual passion and up until today Niels is still shredding the skateparks.  With this in mind we came up with the idea to make the handle of his knife entirely of used skateboards. Another friend of Niels has a cool company named Focused, that makes furniture of used skateboards and was kind enough to provide us with a piece of ‘skateboard wood’.  All in all it was a great cooperation among friends of Niels, which resulted into a great personal gift.


Versatile cooking knife for cutting up, filleting and preparing meat and fish. Slim blades for intricate tasks, pull or push cuts. Most standard and popular blade among Western Style knives, so called “Chefs Knife”. Gyuto is one of the most versatile blade type, suitable design for cutting, slicing meats, vegetables and fishes.

Carbon Steel

Our blades of carbon steel are made from discarded circular saw blades. While stainless steel is the most common material for kitchen knives, carbon steel is often the preferred choice of culinary professionals. That’s because a carbon steel blade, when properly cared for, holds a sharp edge for a long time.

Because there is a relatively large amount of carbon in the steel, the blade is very hard, but therefore not stainless. This means that the knife discolours quickly, especially when fruit acids are involved, for example. Depending on what you have cut, you can find different shades of grey on the blade. This is also called patina and is nothing to worry about. The patina partly ensures that the knife is less susceptible to rust in the long term. The knife will never become rust-free, which is why good maintenance is important.
