African Wenge Utility Paring Knife

Designed by Don Carlos Andrade as the 'companion' piece to his larger FTTU model, this handmade utility / paring knife features a gorgeous African Wenge handle with a single mosaic pin and two stainless pins in the back. The 1095 carbon steel blade is differentially heat treated and etched to reveal the temper line Don does so well., and the slightly convex blade is then polished by hand. Balanced beautifully, the 3.75" (95mm) blade and comfortable, ergonomic handle make for a versatile and delightful cutting experience. A cloth-wrapped protective case is included.
