Purpose of Kiritsuke
The kiritsuke is one of the few multi-purpose traditional Japanese knives, and it may be used as a yanagi or usuba knife. This style of knife is traditionally only used by the executive chef in the Japanese kitchen.
Left-handed blades must be special ordered from Japan, and will cost 50% more than the right-handed blades. Due to how each traditional Japanese knife is handmade by right handed craftsmen, it will take 4 to 6 weeks to forge and deliver.
The initial blade serves as a sharpening guide in the future.Free initial sharpening and uraoshi sharpening is available with every purchase. Please be aware that sharpened knives are not eligible for returns.
