These are sometimes referred to as kiritsuke gyutos. This double bevel design is easier to use and sharpen than the traditional single bevel kiritsuke. It also allows for an ambidextrous personality to the knife.
We believe these knives are perfect for new users or anyone looking for a really well-priced cutter that has personality and uniqueness in spades. Watch the video below to see how they're made. Please remember these are made under crude conditions with used steel so you should expect that they're rough and have imperfections that exceed most of our other knives. All measurements are approximations.
