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.
