Hammered 440C Japanese steel Kiritsuke - KOTAI
The Kiritsuke is the equivalent of the French chef's knife, able to cut everything except bones and frozen food. Japanese precision, western strength. The best of both worlds. * 100% handmade * Japanese 440C steel * Full tang * Ebony handle * Perfectly balanced * Stainless steel * Pine wood saya (sheath) included with each knife * Lifetime warranty * HRC hardness: 59-60 * Weight: 190g The Kiristuke, a versatile knife, is the model of choice for many Japanese chefs. As a matter of fact, in most fine restaurants only the chef is allowed to use it, which is why the Kiristuke is often considered a symbol of expertise and status. Beyond the aesthetic appeal, the hammering of the blade "Tsuchime" creates small pockets of air between the blade and the food slices. This ancient Japanese method prevents the food from sticking to the blade for a quick and pleasant cut. The KOTAI Kiritsuke is forged with 440C steel, a premium steel that combines high carbon content for hardness and edge durability with the optimal amount of chrome to prevent oxidation. The full hidden tang - a single piece of steel from the tip of the blade to the end of the handle - gives the Kiritsuke ideal balance and outstanding durability.
