The Kori Artisan 8″ Kiritsuke is an excellent all-purpose Japanese knife that can be used like a Gyutoh (chef’s knife) for the preparation of boneless meats and vegetables, and the angled tip makes for simple slicing, just like the Yanagiba (slicing knife). Traditionally, the Kiritsuke was a status symbol reserved for use by executive chefs, and the beautiful Japanese quality 37-layer Damascus clad blade and triple riveted linen micarta handle of this Kori Artisan Kiritsuke will make you feel like a professional.
Canadian designed Kori Artisan knives are handcrafted for beauty, function, and superior performance. Taking over 60 steps to complete each knife, Kori Artisan uses advanced materials and crafting techniques to ensure your knives last you years. Each blade features a Japanese VG10 core, surrounded by 36 layers of hammered steel to create that beautiful layered Damascus pattern. The final point of contact is the handle. Using a beautiful, riveted linen micarta handle, the texture provides the ultimate tactile sensation and control. It is completed by a traditional mosaic pin and end cap.
