Chiquito is our biggest knife, coming in at almost 16 inches long. It is made to break down large chunks of meat. While very sturdy, it is surprisingly lightweight for its size, and intentionally balanced slightly towards the blade.
The blade is made of Swedish Sandvik Stainless Steel which is highly coveted in the knife-making world. It is renowned for its excellent corrosion resistance, high hardness, and outstanding edge retention, making it very easy to maintain.
This model’s handle features pure Purple Heart - a hardwood native to Central and South America celebrated for its durability and striking natural red wine color. Other available handles include Guayubira and Olive.
Length (Blade/Full Knife): 10.2in / 15.8in
Case: Heavy Duck Canvas
I am constantly chopping bunches of veggies, and this knife is perfect. It is a great knife. It fits in my hand perfectly; I have been using this knife for years. It is very sharp and makes quick work of slicing and dicing. I will buy more knives when I have extra money to spend on myself.
I got this for my husband for Christmas. He absolutely loves this knife. So sharp and such a cool unique handle. - He was slicing fruits and veggies for a good half hour right when he opened it. It was like watching the real life fruit ninja game.
I had some questions before purchasing and customer service got back to me so quick and legit answered all my questions asked.
Couldn’t recommend this company more!
Great knife, came super sharp and has held it's edge very well. You cannot best the quality, and makes for a beautiful conversation starter in your kitchen.
The knife is sharp, well crafted, and has a beautiful handle.
Got my Gustavo and immediately hit the kitchen to dice some things up. What a great, well balanced knife. Cuts with ease and the walnut handle fits cozy in my hand. Also, there was a nice hand written letter from the owner which I thought was nice.
