Ziricote Kiritsuke Utility

An offering with all the hallmarks of a Don Andrade kitchen tool: ziricote wood with gorgeous grain for the hidden-tang handle, carved to Don's hand-hugging form that you won't want to put down; a blackwood inlay and mosaic pin that ensure with their recognizable aesthetic that there is no doubt about who built this knife; and stunning etched and polished 1095 carbon steel with a differential heat treatment that gives this light and thin blade the final touch to make it a workhorse in the kitchen for any number of daily tasks. And of course a cloth-covered protective case is included.

Completely satisfied. Received this stunning knife promptly, and it came very well packaged. Customer service was above and beyond expectations. Abe stocks beautiful knives, and genuinely cares about his customers. This won't be the last knife I buy from Eating Tools!
