Tribal Chef Ultralight

Barely 2.4mm wide at the heel and tapering to just 1.35mm wide 1" back from the tip, the Tribal Chef Ultralight is a new model from Don Carlos Andrade that is as fast and easy to handle as it is light and good looking. Just enough knuckle clearance for light chopping, this knife will excel particularly well at a variety of slicing and detail-oriented tasks where a thin, sharp, low-profile blade is the requirement. The 52100 carbon steel is fully hardened and receives Don's mustard finish, applied using (you guessed it) mustard. A cloth-covered transport case is included.
