A perfect knife for those who prefer a slicing motion over rocking when cooking, the stylish combination of half kurouchi hammer finish, exposed aogami super cutting edge and striking morado wood handle work wonderfully and the kiritsuke is a great all rounder despite its sometimes more traditional use being for working with fish.
