Experience the finesse and beauty of a handcrafted masterpiece with the Kiritsuke Blue Steel #2 Kurouchi Damascus Buffalo Ebony Handle 240mm.

Perfect for precision slicing and cutting, the Kiritsuke knife is sure to make a bold statement in any kitchen.

“Kiritsuke” knifes are an all-purpose knife featured a diagonally cut-off tip. Kiritsuke knives are one of the few multipurpose traditional Japanese blades, and can be used as a slicer or a vegetable knife. These sword shaped knives feature a straighter and wider edge than a yanagi for vegetables, and a longer blade than an usuba for slicing fish with ease. The user needs more skill with traditional Japanese knives in order to utilize this unique kiritsuke style design properly. Traditionally, these knives are used only by the chefs as a symbol of status.

Aogami No.2 (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is made by adding Chromium and Tungsten / Wolfram to Shirogami No.2. This results in increased toughness and the production of hard carbide molecules which improve edge retention. Many knife users have noted that while Aogami No.2 is very similar to Shirogami No.2 in terms of edge sharpness, it has slightly superior edge retention.

Kurouchi Finish, the unprocessed (black) part on the top side of the blade has already developed a dark patina, which protects the blade and gives it a traditional Japanese look.

Damascus is a laminated steel knife made of several layers of different steel materials. The center of the blade is made of hard steel for sharpness, and both sides are covered with multiple soft steel materials. The multiple steels are metallurgically joined, not by plating or glue. The more the blade is forged, the more complex the ripples become, and the more beautiful the unique grain pattern becomes.

Super Cook knife

Perfect steel, it is heavy, for german consumer it is not so perfect balanced.(They like to have more weight at the end of the handle.) I like it verry much.You can see it is really handmade.

With Character

This knife has character. It has a striking look and feel. The patina gives the knife a kind of living quality. In the hand it has a kind of dynamism - it is a pleasure to use. I have one problem however - can anyone tell me what the Japanese symbols mean?!

Product Features

Handmade Forging

With the traditional forging process, the molecules of the iron material are finely tuned, leading to the completion of a "living kitchen knife" that breathes.

Durability

The process of heating and forging each material for mold making is repeated three or four times to quickly shape the blade and create durability before the carbon is released from the steel causing it to lose its original strength.

Sharpness

The blade is the most important factor in achieving the best possible sharpness. It is polished in our own blade factory to produce uncompromising sharpness.

Handle

The highest priority is placed on sturdiness, a sense of luxury, and a shape that is easy to grip and does not cause fatigue even after long hours of use.
