Inlaid Ironwood French Utility 125mm

Inspired by the classic Alsace French style chef knives that were produced 100 years ago and more, this rendition by Don Carlos Andrade’s features a satin-finished 52100 carbon steel blade measuring 125mm / 4.92" long by 36mm high. Tapering to a needle-like tip for hours of carving and detail work, the versatile and beautiful blade is especially thin and light. Triple inlaid with antique ivory micarta, the ironwood handle is shaped for grip and comfort, like the Alsace knives it pays homage to. A cloth-covered saya is included.
