Purple Maple Classic French Utility

Designed for detail work and a host of daily tasks around the kitchen, this Classic French Utility from bladesmith Don Carlos Andrade stands out with a beautifully executed rainbow quench that creates captivating contrast in the blade. At 5.5" (140mm) the 1095 carbon steel blade is thin, light and razor sharp, tapering from 2.6mm wide at the heel to a slim yet strong tip. Stabilized and purple dyed maple contrasts the antique micarta inlay and mosaic pin with a look in line with Don's classic aesthetic. A one-of-a-kind heirloom piece that will last generations. Handmade cloth-covered carrying case is included.

Don's backgrounds in sculpting, cooking and blacksmithing are each evident in every custom kitchen knife he creates, made one at a time at his small shop in Los Osos, California. This Purple Maple Classic French Utility knife is a wonderful example of Don's ability to match form with uncompromising function.
