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.

I absolutely love this knife!
Review by Morris B. on 3 Jun 2020review stating I absolutely love this knife!
I absolutely love this knife! Takeda as usual hits a home run! A little heavier than his Santoku or Gyuto, but in a good, sturdy way. Razor sharp right out of the box and beautiful as hell. If you’re considering getting one, do it. You won’t regret it!

Review by Jason L. on 16 Apr 2020review stating Badass is an understatement
I've been dreaming about getting a Takeda for a few years, and finally bit the bullet. Funny that this knife is the small size, as mine is 66mm tall and 220mm long.
Straight out of the box, I thought that it needed a bit of thinning behind the edge to reduce wedging a bit. Performance is incredible now after that thinning and polishing. Definitely takes some getting used to with how front heavy the blade is, but I love it now.
Handle is well finished and feels great. Overall, the thing just looks amazing. Can't wait to keep using for years and years to come.

Review by Nikolai V. on 2 May 2020review stating Bomb.com
If you're serious about Japanese knives, you gotta own a Takeda! I was debating between a Guyto and this Kiritsuke and definitely made the right choice (thanks Ellie)! Has a gentle curved profile, but flatter than a guyto, so awesome at chopping and for meats. The shape is bad ass! So light and thin for a large blade, there's nothing like it! I only had it for a few weeks and already thinking of another Takeda...

Q: Do you have a photo of this knife?
A: Hey there, I just added a photo that we recently took to the product page, we have more shots coming soon, but this should give you an idea! Let me know if you need anything else. - Ellie
