Red Sweet Gum EDK Chef

Designed by bladesmith Don Carlos Andrade as the ultimate midsize knife in any kitchen, the EDK is a capable and versatile workhorse in a compact package. This head-turning rendition features a 1095 carbon blade with distal taper, convex grind and forced mustard patina. And we haven't even gotten to the handle, shaped from red sweet gum pod cast resin with translucent G10 liners and three matching mosaic pins. A cloth-covered protective case is included.
