Masashi Shiroshu Kiritsuke 210mm

About the shape Inspired by the profile of a traditional European chef knife and 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 Masashi Shiroshu - Masashi-san makes a beautifully polished and crazy sharp blade, working entirely by himself hand-forging, sharpening, and putting on the handles. He’s also a bit of a risk taker, forging knives in his flip-flops and lighting cigarettes off white-hot knife steel. Bad. Ass. This shiny, sexy damascus blade combines extreme good-looks with ruggedness and ease of maintenance. SLD stainless steel gets razor sharp, but doesn't rust like carbon steel.
