Yoshito Yamakawa has retired due to health reasons and these are the last knives we have of his. Save $50. Only 5 left.

Kiritsuke blades have arguably the most iconic profiles of any blade in the Japanese knife world. The reverse tanto tip gives the knife a very weapon-like appearance. In fact, the tip is a really important component of the overall efficiency of this unusual gyuto. The tip is very nimble but also delicate, while the knife has a flatter profile than a normal gyuto which lends itself well to chopping and push cutting.

The core construction of the blade uses Shirogami #1 steel with a cladding of soft stainless steel. This series of knives is hardened to approximately 60 HRC. This steel is known for being very easy to sharpen, and being able to take highly refined, keen edges. The surface is given a nashiji or, pear skin, finish. The cladding enhances the strength and durability of the knife while protecting the core steel from shocks and corrosion. It also aids in food release.

We love the rustic antique finish of these blades, which sets them apart from other knives in this price range, as does the attractive walnut octagonal handle with black pakka wood ferrule. But of course the looks are secondary to the fine performance that this knife is capable of. We recommend giving this knife your serious consideration if you seek a larger, flatter gyuto style blade with character and performance to spare.

      Questionable Quality Control, March 16, 2020
    Posted By: Victor Martinez - verified customer

    The one I received seemed to have a quality control issue, making sharpening very difficult. I was excited to try shirogami
