Rainbow Shallot Knife 136mm

In quintessential Don Carlos Andrade style comes a uniquely designed, boldly styled, and above all else, proudly utilitarian, handmade chef knife. Forged to shape from 1095 carbon tool steel, the tall, razor-sharp blade in Don's 'Shallot Knife' profile with a 'step' design element along the spine as it drops toward the needle-like tip, measures 136mm / 5.4" long and 48mm high at the heel, giving it big potential and versatility in a compact package. Thin at the edge with his usual, pronounced convex geometry, the blade's bevels have received Don's rainbow quench and silky, polished finish for a striking look. Sculpted from a gorgeous piece of G.L. Hansen & Sons G-carta, the handle is exceedingly comfortable and features a total of five bronze pins, three of them domed and hand-hammered.
