Damasteel Tribal Utility 155mm

The Tribal Utility model from Don Carlos Andrade is one of the most versatile and beloved of his designs, and this one-of-a-kind build boasts stunning Rose pattern Damsteel stainless damascus steel for the 155mm / 6.1" cutting edge. Dressed in African Blackwood with a dyed, stabilized curly maple inlay and 1mm two-tone woven cotton line wrap form the handle in Don's interpretation of the wa style shape. A superb piece from a wildly talented blacksmith, chef and sculptor. A cloth-covered protective case is included.

The Story

Don's time spent in the back of the house over many years informs his convex blade geometry, balance and overall approach to culinary tool making, and this is a particular knife we will never tire of.
