Description

The Shun Blue Steel 8-inch Kiritsuke Knife offers all the cutting performance and versatility of the 10-inch Kiritsuke, but in a classic 8-inch blade length. In Japan, the kiritsuke is known as the master chef's knife. Designed for all the tasks for which you'd use a chef's knife, it works extremely well with vegetables, julienne, dice, and more. Can also be used for cleaning and portioning boneless proteins, particularly fish, and slices cooked proteins with grace and ease. The straight edge won't rock through cuts such as a traditional chef's knife.

The Shun Blue Steel Knife collection was developed in partnership with award-winning Chef Chris Cosentino, internationally renowned for his "nose-to-tail" cooking philosophy. Chef Cosentino chose traditional Japanese blade shapes essential for preparing proteins, for which he is known for. The Shun Blue Steel collection features a blue carbon steel core sandwiched between two layers of mirror polished stainless steel. This unique combination delivers a razor-sharp cutting edge without the additional maintenance of a carbon knife. The blade is hand-sharpened and enhanced with a beautiful grey PakkaWood handle. This newly designed handle is a variation of the traditional styled Japanese handle. Shun Blue Steel is an exciting new collection of traditional Japanese culinary knives available not only for the professionals but for avid home cooks. Made in Japan with a limited lifetime warranty.
