Green Maple Damasteel Kiritsuke 173mm

World-class bladesmith Don Carlos Andrade delivers with extraordinary precision and creativity in this 173mm / 6.8" kiritsuke chef knife. In Thor™ pattern Damasteel stainless damascus, the 48mm tall blade is light and fast in the hand, tapering to a fine, needle-like tip, with superbly shaped convex bevels for performance on the cutting board that Don's work is so well known for. Stabilized maple wood is shaped by hand in to a curved and faceted handle that leaves nothing to want, and accented with a translucent green G10 inlay. A cloth-covered saya is included.
