About the Shape - Inspired by the profile of a traditional European chef knife and the badass tip of a Kiritsuke (Traditionally a single bevel knife), double bevel Kiritsukes are a multi-purpose knife with a slight meat cutting bias. If you want one knife to do it all, and look cooler than your buddy, this is your knife. For the at-home or professional cook, we recommend a Kiritsuke which measures between 210mm and 240mm long.
About Haruyuki Kokuto - Named for Shochu made from brown sugar, the Kokuto gives you the elegance and style of a traditional Japanese knife with none of the maintenance. Ginsan Stainless Steel functions like high-carbon steel so it sharpens easily, and take a 'crisp' edge like high-carbon steels. The handle is made from Yew wood, which has great durability with a gorgeous finish. These blades are a great way to start if you're looking for your first Japanese knife!
