KITA Series 7-Inch Kiritsuke Knife with Sheath, High Carbon X-7 Damascus Steel, 501417
A beautifully-crafted knife that will elevate any kitchen. Exceptionally sharp and striking in design, the full-tang X-7 Damascus steel blade features a hammered texture that looks stunning and allows food to slide right off the blade for easy slicing and dicing. The lightweight and durable octagonal handle comes in a rich blue and black faux-wood-grain pattern and is complemented and secured by a single mosaic rivet. Each knife comes with a deep blue wood magnetic Saya-style sheath that is perfectly shaped to protect the knife's distinct blade.
The 7-inch Kiritsuke Knife is a Japanese-style chef’s knife, uniquely suited for chopping vegetables in a quick and controlled cleaver-style motion, as well as thinly slicing meat, particularly fish. The nearly flat edge is ideal for quick up and down chops when prepping vegetables, while the sharply angled tip enables a clean, single pull-cut when slicing meat.
