The Kiritsuke knife is one of the few multipurpose traditional Japanese blades that can be used as a Yanagi (fish slicer) or an Usuba (vegetable knife). 

It is a very versatile knife that can be used to perform many of the tasks normally done with a Gyuto (Chef's knife).

  • Its lightweight, double-beveled edge can be used to perform many of the tasks normally done with a Gyuto.
  • A truly versatile chef's knife (Kiritsuke) due to its ability to 'Rock and Chop' and suits all cutting styles.
  • Damascus steel blade with 67-layers (VG10 Core and 33 Folded Damascus Layers) is corrosion resistant and tough with a Rockwell Hardness of HRC 62.
  • Blade features a Fireball Damascus Steel Billet pattern.
  • Features unique coloured, octagonal handle. Each Knife has a unique handle and the colour will vary from knife to knife. Some may have multiple colours and others may have less (colours cannot be chosen).
  • Double Bevel cutting edge sharpened using the traditional Japanese 'Honbazuke' method, where the blade is sharpened and polished by hand in three stages

Forged with imported VG-10 stainless steel for the core blade material, plus 66 layers of Damascus Steel, this blade will last a lifetime.

    Our Kiritsuke features an octagonal handle made from wood, which is chemically stabilised. The stabilising process makes the wood tougher, super durable and less likely to warp or crack.

    The Kiritsuke knife is suited to 'rock chopping', 'push cutting' and 'pull cutting'. Our take on the Kiritsuke blade has been vigorously tested to be a true, well-rounded knife.

    Dimensions:

    • Full length: 33 cm 
    • Blade length: 20.5 cm
    • Blade width: 4.8 cm (The widest point)
    • Blade thickness: 2.0 mm
    • Net weight: 200g

    Damascus blades are made from high carbon steel with small amounts of chromium in the alloy. While high in carbon steel, the blade can show rust if not cared for. You should ensure to keep the blades clean and dry thoroughly to avoid rust or staining. Hand wash only.

      We have a range on our website and also have some articles on our blog, which talk you through the best way to look after and sharpen your knives, including recommended angles, etc

      Knives should never go in the dishwasher. Dishwasher detergent is very abrasive, and along with the banging around that happens during a wash cycle, will take the sharp edge right off your knife. The high heat can also damage the handle or misshape them. Always wash knives by hand in the sink with dish soap and water and dry after.

      If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, within 30 days of placing your order, we will refund you for your purchase with no questions asked.

      Kiritsuke

      Working in a professional kitchen requires me to have a strong and reliable knife which this is. The edges give it a perfect slicing end to carve and mark while the blade gives a beautiful cutting angle. The knife itself is gorgeous and with every handle being unique gives it that personal touch, I 100% reccomend this for home and professional use to everyone

      Producto bueno.!!

      A ver, seré sincero, me ha tardado casi un mes en llegar, pero el servicio al cliente siempre ha sido bueno.

      El cuchillo, maravilloso, es grande eh, pero vamos, grande!! Y mu bonito, eso sí, bien afilado, por lo que hay que tener cuidado.

      Por soltar otros datos, te viene bien empaquetado, y la caja es bonita, recomiendo pagar los 10 euros de más (Moneda de España) para tener seguridad en tu envío por si se pierde, como dije al inicio me tardo, pero porque vivo en un pueblo de Catalunya fantasma, si no, al igual me llegaba al día siguiente.

      Como sea, por lo demás bien, lo recomiendo para tener cuchillos bonitos de decoración o colección.
