Blue EDK Chef Knife

Designed to be the ultimate daily-use kitchen knife, the EDK, or Every Day Kitchen model by Don Carlos Andrade features a 140mm / 5.5 blade with geometry suited to both large and small tasks, rocking cuts on the board, detail work with the needle-like tip, and everything between. This one-of-a-kind build features 1095 carbon steel, differentially heat treated with clay to produce a beautiful hamon, and Don's typically outstanding free-hand convex blade geometry, not to mention the rounded and brilliantly polished spine and choil. The rare Westinghouse blue paper micarta handle is adorned with a translucent G10 inlay and peened brass pins.
