Kiritsuke-style gyutos have a profile that is quite flat from the heel to about two-thirds along to end. They then transition into a gentle curve to the reverse tanto style tip. The blade length of this specimen is 208mm at the edge which is perfectly matched to the 45mm height.

Of course, the outstanding physical feature of all kiritsuke knives is that fascinating looking tip. This results in a knife with a slightly different balance than a regular gyuto. The length of the knife is all on the cutting edge so there is less mass above the tip from the spine. The slim tip is also great at getting into tight spaces and doing detail work normally associated with thinner style blades.

This is an unusual kiri in that it is double-beveled (most kiritsukes are single-sided blades). This feature enhances durability at the edge and gives an ambidextrous personality to the blade overall. It also makes the knife much easier to sharpen and maintain.

DP knives offer an excellent treatment of VG-10 stainless steel which takes a silky edge without compromising retention or durability. The VG-10 core is clad in softer stainless steel which delivers an effortless sharpening experience and adds structural ductility and support to the blade. This line is constructed with a black micarta handle and stainless steel bolster.

    3 days from ordering to my door. Fastest shipment from CKTG yet (thanks USPS too amid the covid mess).
    First impressions...Crazy sharp OTB. Reminds me of my Kohetsu HAP40 petty. Weight was the really odd part. It feels heavy on the handle side but is still balanced. I'll put it through its paces over the next week and find out if there is user fatigue or any issues with changing technique. I have a ho-bunka that is basically a 190mm version of this knife which is fairly easy to use. Just needed to apply nakiri techinique because of the flatter belly. We'll see where the Tojiro lands.
    The only real issue I had was the the choil was really rough. It was not shaped/ground properly and it is almost sharp enough to cut me. Hence the 4 stars. I'll take some sandpaper to smooth it out
    Overall, satisfied

    5  Tojiro DP Kiritsuke, May 7, 2019
    Posted By: Dominic San Nicolas - verified customer

    I currently own a sujihiki and a gyuto from the Tojiro DP series and when I came across this kiritsuke, I just had to have it. It is now my new workhorse and it hasn't dulled or rounded after 1 1/2 months of use while working two kitchen jobs.
