Kiritsuke 189 S-grind Saya


Kiritsuke, the universal kitchen knife for everyday use. The blade shape is similar to the Santoku knife, but has a higher and longer blade profile.

The knife has a special “hollow” cut, which gives it less resistance when slicing and thus higher cutting power. The main advantage is that the sliced food sticks to the blade much less than with a conventional wedge-shaped knife.

The blade is made of Swedish AEB-L stainless steel with a high hardness of 60-61 HRC. With such a high hardness, the blade has an excellent and durable edge, but the knife must not be used to cut into bones or frozen food, as this risks damaging the blade.

The knife comes with a custom-made Saya walnut sheath. Saya is a traditional Japanese wooden cover that protects the knife blade and ensures safety during storage and transport.

The knife requires no special care, just wash with water and wipe dry after use. Sharpening the knife is best on water stones, please feel free to contact me if needed.
