If ever a knife shape deserved the description of “sword like” it is the Kiritsuke. This is the true multi purpose traditional Japanese blade shape. It can be employed as an Usuba or vegetable knife as well as serving a dual roll as a Yanagi or fish slicer. The Kiritsuke has a very flat straight edge which combined with its extra length allows for this knife to achieve its multiple rolls with ease and efficiency. In Japan, only executive chefs are allowed to use these fine knives. But we are pleased to offer you this stunning example of the most versatile tool in the Japanese knife arsenal.
The fit and finish of the Shun Blue Steel Kiritsuke is second to none. A mirror polished stainless steel outer layer encapsulates the fine grained blue #2 high carbon steel. This layer aids in general maintenance and better food release. The san-mai construction is beautifully realized by bead blasting the edge. The exposed cutting edge is razor sharp and the blue steel maintains that edge after hours of work. A finely crafted Japanese style handle finishes the picture. A saya or blade sheath is also included.

CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and it’s evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. It’s nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
