Description

The kiritsuke is a multipurpose traditional Japanese knife typically used by experienced chefs. Slicing, chopping, julienne, brunoise—a skilled cook can do just about anything with this knife. Melding the sharpness of carbon steel with stainless steel’s corrosion resistance and ease of maintenance, Shun Blue represents a leap forward in knife technology. The blade features a core of blue steel—a fine-grained carbon steel known for retaining an extremely sharp edge—sandwiched between two layers of corrosion-resistant stainless steel, resulting in a blazingly sharp knife that is still easy to maintain.

Features Hide

  • Rockwell Hardness of 61 offers incredible sharpness and edge retention
  • Japanese artisans use san mai construction techniques to sandwich a core of blue steel between two layers of mirror polished stainless steel before hand sharpening the blade to a 16° double-beveled edge
  • Perfectly balanced pakkawood handle features a variation of a traditional hexagonal shape modified to meet demanding requirements for secure grip, comfort and control
  • Knife will eventually develop a beautiful, dark patina along the cutting edge that helps protect the carbon-steel core from corrosion and is recognized by chefs and professional cooks as the mark of a much-loved knife
  • Developed in partnership with award-winning chef Chris Cosentino, known for his nose-to-tail cooking philosophy

Wanted an all-purpose knife larger than 8". Also, I cut left handed and the shape of this handle lends itself to either hand.

is this a single bevel traditional style?
A shopper on Mar 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This knife has a double-beveled edge.
Just a comparison question, between this knife and maybe birchwood chef knife, which one are more durable and sharp?
Iven on Oct 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Miyabi has a steeper angle which makes it sharper, and a higher Rockwell hardness which makes it more durable.
Is it for south paws?
A shopper on Dec 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This knife has a symmetrical handle, unlike many of the Shun Classic series, so it should be fine with either left-hand or higher-hand drive. I have a number of the Shun Classics with a "right-hand" drive handle and my sister, a militant left-hander, hasn't even noticed.
Could you please list the diminsions for the 8 inch Shun Kiritsuke knife you have only the 10 inch diminsions listed?
A shopper on Oct 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm just spitballing here, but it's probably eight inches.
