XXL EDK Chef 215mm

This 'Jumbo' XXL version of Don Carlos Andrade's Every Day Kitchen (EDK) chef knife features a 215mm / 8.46" blade in 52100 carbon steel that tapers from a stout 3.2mm above the heel to 1.3mm an inch from the tip. The forced patina in Don's 'Snowflake' pattern is applied with mustard. At 9.2oz and featuring a blade height of 54mm these two knives, the model never to be made again, are extraordinary chopping and daily prep machines, work-horses in every sense, shaped with Don's precise convex geometry, made to work long days in home or professional kitchens. Carved from vintage turquoise & black micarta with blue micarta inlays and peened bronze pins, the handle shape more often associated with non-culinary knives is wonderfully practical in the kitchen.
