Description

The Kiritsuke is one of the most versatile and essential of all knives a cook can have. The blade of the Kiritsuke is wider and straighter than a standard chef knife while having a curved tip. The wideness of the knife with its straight end makes it suited for chopping vegetables while the long curved tip makes it suitable for cutting thin slices in meat or fish.

Preparing delicious meals starts with taking wholesome ingredients and using the best tools such as a high quality chef’s knife to make every meal into something special. The Kiritsuke is suited for many tasks such as for dicing, slicing, and chopping fresh produce from a farmers market to carving a roast chicken straight from the oven. Even the simplest tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional.

    Just received my new Ginsan 180 Kiritsuke with Saya. With over 30 Japanese knives I have to say this one impressed me with its beautiful sexy wide bevel and perfect fit and finish. Very thin tip almost disappears and works wonders on onions. The handle is also awesome. Great distal taper and polished spine, Nothing more in a knife I could ask for. Ill be looking at more like this one in the future.
    My first purchase from Yoshihiro, they answered my questions fast, shipped out same day and I would recommend them.
