Gihei HAP40 Kiritsuke 200mm is a new knife for 2021 by the famed father and son team located in Sanjo City, Japan. We have been working with Gihei for many years and during that time they have produced some of the nicest blades we have offered.

The kiritsuke featured here is constructed using HAP40 PM semi-stainless steel as the inner core (hagane) with a strong outer jigane made from stainless steel. HAP40 is a very good steel for kitchen knives, especially when heat treated to 65-66 HRC. The heat treatment applied to Gihei blades is of notable quality. This combination results in a knife that takes a great edge and stays sharp for a long time.

Kiritsuke knives have gained in popularity since we started asking our blacksmiths to make them about 8 years ago. They are prized for their handy, user-friendly size and chef’s knife-like versatility.

This knife is paired with a lovely oak octagonal handle with burnt urushi finish.
