210mm KIRITSUKE #166
210mm Kiritsuke. In stainless clad Aogami Super - a very high carbon steel from Hitachi.
A classic chef knife with a k-tip. The Gyuto shape was developed by Japanese knifemakers in the second half of the 19th century when western-made chefs' knives started to be seen in Japan. Gyuto literally means 'cow sword'. The Kiritsuke version has a sharp angled front edge giving an extra fine tip, and it looks great.
Stainless steel cladding
Aogami (blue paper) Super carbon steel core
Handle in 5000 year old Fenland bog oak - 135mm
N.B. There is a small cosmetic flaw on the cladding which you can see in the second picture - hence the price reduction from £290 to £270. The performance of the knife is not affected.
