Another brilliantly versatile knife, the kiritsuke is capable of handling most kitchen tasks. Larger than the Gyuto, this blade can handle both jointing and filleting meat and fish more easily. At 24cm with a pronounced heel and squared tip the Kiritsuke is both robust and excellent for slicing or caring meat and large pieces of fish. The Eastern Pakkawood range comes gift boxed with a wooden ‘Saya’ that off ers the perfect protection for your knife, protecting yourself and others from its supremely sharp edge. The blade has a 67 layers of VG-10 Damascus steel, the highest quality steel with a high carbon content that gives it exceptional toughness. The exquisite craftmanship in these knives can be seen in the elegant layered damascus pattern on the blade. The blade is finished with deep black finished Pakkawood handle which strikes a balance between opulence and hard wearing-durability.
