The Jikko Kiritsuke is the most common western knife used throughout the world. It can be used to cut boneless meat, boneless fish and vegetables. Blue No. 2 carbon steel is the highest quality steel material. The characteristics of this steel are its high edge retention and durability. Knives made from this material are commonly used in restaurants such as Sushi Restaurants. Since there is a need to continuously slice Sashimi, the steel retains its edge and the chef is able to produce beautifully prepared Sashimi all day long.

Jikko was established in 1901 in the Japanese city of Sakai located in the Osaka prefecture. Sakai is a well know as city where a number of Japan's top quality knives are produced. Jikko is one of the few manufacturers in the Sakai region who has such a long history and are considered as one of the top knife manufactures within the Sakai region. Jikko uses a special Hatsuke method, which is used to give the blades an even finer angle, making Jikko knives even sharper and at the same time allowing the blade to remain sharper for longer.
