These are the all new Swedish Stainless HH series. HH stands for high hardness. We had Konosuke change the heat treatment of these knife and lifted the HRC to 61. Now you can get great performance and easy sharpening with excellent stainless properties all in one. This is a 240mm Kiritsuke/Gyuto hybrid from Konosuke. This is one of the most popular lengths amongst our professional cooks. This knife requires an adjustment in cutting technique as compared to a western-style knife or even a regular Gyuto due to the almost flat cutting edge. You will need to use more of a push or pull cutting technique to get the most from this knife. Unlike a traditional Kiritsuke, this knife is double beveled with a 50/50 edge. Heat-treated to an HRC of 61, these blades are attached to an octagonal ho wood handle with a blonde Buffalo horn ferrule. As with all of our Konosuke knives, this comes with the option of a Saya.
