Miyazaki Kajiya Tsubaki Aogami Stainless Kurouchi Tsuchime Hakata 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 the Maker - Haruki Miyazaki-san is a 35-year-old blacksmith in Goto islands in Nagasaki prefecture. He decided to become a blacksmith and apprentice under Ooba-san in Fukuoka after he graduated high school, and after 5 years of apprenticeship, he moved back to Goto islands and opened his own workshop. His knife style is called “Hakata”, which is another name for Fukuoka and when people say Hakata ramen, that refers to typical Tonkotsu ramen from Fukuoka.
