The Kitaoka 270mm Kiritsuke Blue #2 is the largest of the kiritsuke knives offered by Kitaoka. It is a classic sword shaped blade with a fairly flat edge and long sharp tip. This is a general purpose blade in Japan and as such can perfectly slice fish or process vegetables with equal ability.

The beautifully finished blade is made from Aogami Blue #2 steel with a soft iron outer layer (jigane). The steel is hardened to 62-63 Rockwell and has a single bevel ground into the right hand side of the blade. This is strictly a right handed user knife. Care must be taken with the cleaning and drying of the knife to prevent corrosion.

There is something about a kiritsuke that excites many knife users. The blade profile is slim and purposeful looking. The knife’s multi tasking ability is something many chefs are drawn to. This is a knife for experienced users. In fact, only the top executive chefs in Japanese restaurants are considered proficient enough to handle it.

Are you up to the task? If so you might find that this knife becomes your go-to blade for most of your kitchen cutting and slicing duties. Please note Kitaoka installs the machi on his knives with a gap that is called Tokyo Style. It's not a flaw, it's an aesthetic choice based on a traditional way of installing the handles. See photo #4 for a visual.

    Posted By: Sean W

    This knife is still a bit beyond my capabilities to be my main knife but for making fine slicing of anything from fish to veg it is my go-to. What I really love is how easy it is to sharpen due to the single bevel. Scary sharp.
