What I love about my Meglio Knives:

André Cardé's Meglio Arsenal

6” Damascus utility knife with desert ironwood handles.

"My Meglio knife is the most durable knife I've ever owned. The edge retention is insane! It takes a beating regularly and holds that edge. What surprises me the most about the blade is being able to have razor quality sharpness while maintaining reliability and the grip is comfy as f***. " - André Cardé
