Purple Tribal Parer 108mm

In classic Don Carlos Andrade style, including a curly maple handle in his iconic, hidden-tang, shield profile fitted with woven cotton 'Tribal' wrap, translucent green G10 inlay and ferrule, this 108mm / 4.3" paring knife packs a big punch in a compact package. The blade, pointed at the front and standing 31mm tall at the heel, is shaped from RWL 34 stainless steel, produced in Sweden by Damasteel, and given a silky, satin finish by Don. A slimming spine above sturdy, convex bevels and a sharp, strong edge make this an outstanding all-around prep knife for detailed slices, light chopping work, and a variety of utility work around the kitchen. A cloth-covered saya is included.
