À propos du kiritsuke

It is a hybrid design combining the characteristics of the Japanese Usuba and Yanagiba. Usuba is a dedicated vegetable knife, while Yanagiba is used to slice raw fish for sushi. Therefore, the Kiritsuke is designed as a general purpose knife for the preparation of traditional Japanese cuisine. Many Kiritsuke-style knives retain the unique bevel design of the Usuba and Yanagiba. Users therefore need to know what the use and maintenance of knives at a single angle entails.

A number of manufacturers are now producing dual-angle kiritsukes, often called kiritsuke gyuto, for Western users who appreciate the striking aesthetics of the profile but need the added versatility of a two-angle profile. The inverted ‘tanto’ profile of the kiritsuke makes the tip very agile but also deli...

The inverted ‘tanto’ profile of the kiritsuke makes the tip very agile but also delicate, while the flat profile lends itself well to the cut.
