Description: In Japan, the kiritsuke is used for all the tasks for which you'd use a chef's knife. Known as the master chef's knife, it offers top cutting performance and versatility. With its straighter edge, the Shun Premier 8-inch Kiritsuke ideal for slicing and push cuts - julienne, dice, or brunoise vegetables with ease. It's also an excellent choice for cleaning and portioning boneless proteins. It slices cooked proteins easily and gracefully. A nice rocking blade makes for easy chopping, while a sharp tip allows for detailed work. Many chef's find this shape allows for better use of the full length of the blade than the classic European chef's knife. Once you try it, you'll find yourself reaching for your Shun Premier 8-inch Kiritsuke more and more often.
The Shun Premier 8-in. Kiritsuke is part of the beautiful Shun Premier line, which calls to mind the hand-forged knives of ancient Japan. Each knife takes at least 100 handcrafted steps to complete. The materials Shun uses are among the most advanced in the industry. Each blade has a cutting core of Shun's proprietary VG-MAX “super steel” to take and hold a precision edge. The layered Damascus cladding supports the core and provides additional stain resistance. Near the edge of the blade, where the steels meet, an undulating line is formed—similar to the hamon formed when samurai swords are tempered using a traditional clay-baking technique. The hammered (tsuchime) finish acts like a series of hollow-ground cavities to reduce drag and release food from the sides of the knife.
The premium walnut toned pakkawood handle nestles comfortably into the curves of the palm and allows for a variety of comfortable and secure grips. Hand wash recommended.
