Buckeye Burl Rainbow Kiritsuke 175mm

A large kiritsuke chef knife from Don Carlos Andrade at 175mm / 6.9", this one-of-a-kind piece matches a gorgeous etched and polished, rainbow-quenched 1095 blade to a bold, green and orange dyed, stabilized buckeye burl handle in Don's signature wa-style form. Stiff and wide at the spine with a gentle, full-length distal taper that produces a work-horse blade balanced beautifully at the choil, the tall profile is convex ground to a very thin, sharp edge, resulting in a knife that can easily be the go-to cutting tool in any kitchen with the ability to move seamlessly between detail-oriented tasks and heavier chopping and dicing needs. The buckeye burl handle is accented with a matching green and orange mosaic pin, and a cloth covered protective case is included.
