Pink Ivory EDK Chef Knife

The EDK, or Every Day Kitchen chef knife by Don Carlos Andrade (formerly the FTTU model) is the ultimate daily-use kitchen knife, especially when only one knife must accommodate every task. This knife, in CPM 154 stainless steel and with Don's typically outstanding free-hand convex blade geometry, is especially versatile and low maintenance, just small enough for handheld tasks and detail work, yet tall enough for chopping and cutting jobs that require a work-horse of a knife. The rare pink ivory wood handle is not only beautiful and unique but is also incredibly comfortable in the hand in any and every grip.
