The Kiritsuke knife is a generously sized all-purpose knife intended to accomplish many cutting tasks around the kitchen. Kiritsuke is the only truly multipurpose traditional Japanese knife, and in Japan only the executive chef in the kitchen is allowed to use one. This 240mm knife blade slices, dices and minces quickly and efficiently, making it the knife you'll reach for again and again.

In our continued pursuit of meeting the needs of professional chefs and avid home cook,s we are very pleased to offer these great knives made by Hideo Kiaoka and his team of skilled craftsmen. Kitaoka-san has this to say about the process. “Traditional handicraftsmen requires us to acquire one skill at a time and we have to learn it with our hands and body.” “I make Deba and Japanese knives mainly, and I would like to try my best to make amazingly sharp and ‘cut that-makes-you-feel-great’ knives as the 3rd generation (of my business family).”

We believe that this knife, together with his other knives in this collection, are proof of his dedication and skill to the fine art of blade smith and knife maker. You can specify either a plain Ho wood D-shaped handle or one made from rosewood with an octagonal profile.

    decent made knife, no flaws, handle seems a bit small (more fit for a small hand). Knife is about 1 inch top to bottom, so feels in hand like a slicer (yanagi). good price for blue steel #2.
