This Kiritsuke knife with a Western twist was handcrafted by our proprietor / in-house knife master Masaaki Saito here in Brisbane.
Kiritsuke is an authentic Japanese chef knife commonly used by professionals before western style chef knives were introduced.
Like any other trends that come and go, Kiritsuke or K-tip by other name are regaining the popularity once again and more than ever.
While very traditional Kiritsuke has single bevel with straight edge, this knife has European style handle and tapered double bevel with a nice curve to meet the western style cutting motions and knife skills.
This knife has a medium weight 265g with a great blade width of 58mm at heel that helps cutting effortlessly without you pushing the blade .
12C27 stainless steel is an amazing knife steel with great edge retention and hardness.
The handle is made from Red Ironbark secured with 3 brass pins.
The polished natural timber handle gives you a very comfortable grips that none of the artificial materials can.
