Blade Type

The Kiritsuke knife, a symbol of expertise in Japanese cuisine, is traditionally used by executive chefs. This multi-purpose knife combines features of a slicer and a vegetable knife, with its angled tip and long blade. It excels in precise slicing, chopping, and julienning, making it a prestigious and versatile tool.

Steel Type

VG10 steel, a high-end Japanese stainless steel, is renowned for its superior edge retention and sharpness. Enriched with carbon and chromium, it offers excellent corrosion resistance. The addition of cobalt, molybdenum, and vanadium enhances its hardness and durability, making VG10 steel ideal for a great everyday workhorse knife steel.

Recommended Maintenance

Store it in a dry environment using magnetic strips, knife rolls, or sayas. Avoid hitting hard or frozen objects and twisting the blade while cutting. These knives are not dishwasher safe. Clean with hot water and a soft cloth, and dry immediately after use to prevent rust spots on the high carbon steel. For more information please read the blog below.

This knife is made with a stainless steel and is easy going and low on maintenance. It has high chromium content, meaning it is generally considered safe to leave wet on the board for short periods of time. is still best practice to not leave this knife to air dry as it's stain-less not stain-none!

A beautifully presented knife that is light and easy to use, great to look at while you're working with it, easy to clean and has a pretty nice edge to it straight out of the box. A great full-sized companion to my Kurosaki Fujin bunka, I've enjoyed getting to know this one
