Description: The kiritsuke gyuto is modeled after the French pattern chef's knife. Longer and slimmer than the santoku, it is suited to preparation of meat and may be used as a general purpose chef's knife. The triangular tip results in a detail oriented, yet stronger tip than the gyuto. The long blade is needed for the slicing motion required to cut meat and the tall profile provides plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board. The long, straight spine is perfect for moving foods across a cutting board after chopping. The kiritsuke gyuto is a perfect choice to grab whether slicing onions, chopping parsley, or dicing meats.
The stunningly beautiful Shun line of kitchen cutlery is forged by Kai in Japan and distributed through Kershaw. Shun's proprietary, high-performance VG-MAX steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that is sharp, durable, corrosion resistant, and beautiful to behold!
'D' shape Black Pakkawood handles provide beauty and function. The 'D' shape is designed for right handed users and provides maximum comfort and control. Pakkawood provides strength and stability along with moisture resistance.
