Description: The Kiritsuke Chef's Knife is a perfect choice when needing a all-purpose knife in the kitchen. It's ideal for slicing and push cuts - julienne, dice, or brunoise vegetables with ease. It's also an excellent choice for cleaning and portioning boneless proteins. It slices cooked proteins easily and gracefully. This 6-inch size features a slightly shorter blade for easy maneuverability and versatility. A nice rocking blade makes for easy chopping, while a sharp tip allows for detailed work. Many chef's find this shape allows for better use of the full length of the blade than the classic European chef's knife. Once you try it, you'll find yourself reaching for your Shun Classic 6-inch Kiritsuke more and more often.
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.
