The kiritsuke is a large multi-purpose kitchen knife. People are fascinated by its diamond-shaped tip which gives the blade a sword-like appearance. Classically kirituske are single grind knives and although some makers make double-grind knives that look like them, only a single grind knife would be considered a true kiritsuke. The shape and size of the knife endow it with a dual personality. It can be used like an usuba for the cutting of vegetables or as a yanagiba to slice raw fish. These are knives that require skill to use correctly and are therefore reserved for executive chefs in Japanese kitchens.

The Kitaoka Damascus Kiritsuke is a completely handmade knife, forged by Hideo Kitaoka in his small workshop in Takefu Village. The core construction of the blade uses Shirogami #1 steel with a multilayer cladding of soft carbon steel, which forms a beautiful Damascus pattern and enhances the strength and durability of the knife. As with all single bevel knives it is a single-handed design, this particular blade being suitable for right-handed users only. The carbon blade also requires care with cleaning and drying to reduce the chances of corrosion and discoloration.

A traditional octagonal handle made from rosewood with a black pakka wood ferrule completes the package. We really like this series of knives and thoroughly recommend them to any cook or chef looking for fine craftsmanship and performance in their kitchen knives.

    I can't say enough good things about this beautiful piece of workmanship. Surprising heft, masterful forging and grind, and a delight to use and to look at.
