The Story

The lone artist and designer behind all California Custom Knives kitchen tools, Don Carlos Andrade, is not only an accomplished sculptor and craftsman, but a trained chef as well. And it shows in each piece he creates, including these stunning black mesquite French style chef knives. This mesquite, like many of the beautiful materials Don sources for use in his knives, is difficult to find and results in a look and feel nearly impossible to duplicate. Don's work speaks for itself.
