DCA Personal Chef

A touch under eight inches of steel fill your hand with ease and balance when gripping this Personal Chef from Don Carlos Andrade. Showing its rubbed finish, the stainless steel is AEBL (aka 13C26), a high-performance steel developed for razor sharp edges and superior toughness that is becoming popular in high-end chef knives. A Rockwell hardness of 60-61 helps ensure that you will not need to sharpen this knife often. 

Don shapes and carves the handle from antique ivory paper micarta, adding an inlay of rare blue Westinghouse ivorite micarta, topped with a mosaic pin. A full size knife in a light, fast package, this one is meant to be a big deal in a small space. To take on any job. A cloth-covered storage case is included as with all of Don's knives.
