Moritaka Ishime Kiritsuke 240mm

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.


NEW CHERRY WOOD HANDLES  Due to over-harvesting Rosewood has become an endangered species in the world, so Moritaka now uses sustainable American cherry handles for Ishime line.

Care Instructions

Care for fully carbon steel knives
  • To maintain the edge, we recommend the usage of a Ceramic Honing Rod. Which can be purchased at 50% off with any knife purchase.
  • Wash and dry the blade by hand immediately after use. Dishwashers are very bad for all knives.
  • This knife fully carbon steel, meaning the whole blade can rust. Over time a patina will form protecting the knife. To help prevent this, you can oil your blade with Camellia Oil after use.
  • Use a soft cloth to wash the blade. Avoid abrasive dish scrubbers and powders as these can damage the finish of your beautiful knife.
  • Do not cut through bones. You can certainly cut along/beside bones, but do not cut into bones. This can, at worst, chip the blade.
  • Never use this knife to cut frozen food. I’m sure you have a 4×4 somewhere in your kitchen for this job.
  • Never twist, cleave or prise the blade.
  • Always use a wooden or plastic cutting board. Never cut on bamboo, glass, marble, slate, a plate, china, marble, arborite or anything harder than steel.
  • Store knives in a way that the blades will not knock into each other.
  • Never transport knives unprotected.
