Knife 8 Chef Classic Kiritsuke
Add THE must-have all-around food prep knife to your collection with the Shun Cutlery 8-inch Classic Kiritsuke Knife. This Japanese kitchen knife is also known as a master chef's knife. With top cutting performance and versatility, it's perfect for all the same tasks as a chef's knife. The slightly curved, razor-sharp 16-degree edge is ideal for slicing or push cuts and works well with rocking cuts. It will julienne, dice or brunoise vegetables with ease, and is an excellent choice for cleaning and portioning boneless meats and fish. The Classic Kiritsuke Knife is constructed with Shun's proprietary VG-Max cutting core with 68 layers of stainless Damascus cladding for a strong, corrosion-resistant, stain-resistant, razor-sharp 16-degree edge that glides through food. The D-shaped, ebony-finished Pakkawood handle is durable, beautiful, comfortable for both left- and right-handed users, and doesn't harbor bacteria. In Japan, the blade is more than a tool – it's a tradition. Housed in Seki City, the heart of the Japanese cutlery industry, Shun Fine Cutlery is dedicated to maintaining this ancient tradition. Each knife is handcrafted by highly skilled artisans to produce blades of unparalleled quality and beauty. We also leverage modern, premium materials and state-of-the-art technology to provide Shun quality to millions of professional chefs and avid home cooks throughout the world.
