Our Yoshihiro Ginsan Suminagashi Kiritsuke knives is forged by our master artisans to create traditional Japanese knives of the highest quality that can provide peace of mind in high paced environments. Ginsan Suminagashi Kiritsuke knives are complimented with a traditional Japanese style handcrafted Premium Ebony handle with Sterling Silver ring and double bolster equipped with a protective wooden sheath called a “Saya,” which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use. This specific Saya included with the knife is brush coated with non-toxic lacquer coating made from organic tree saps in Japan.

The Kiritsuke knife is a traditional Japanese single edged all-purpose chefs knife that resembles a sword and the wideness of the blade gives it the dexterity to do multiple jobs. In recent years a double edged version of the kiritsuke has increasingly become popular with chefs who appreciates the aesthetics of the sword like shape but still prefers to use double edged knives. This particular kiritsuke is the double edged version and will be an easy transition to make from the common chefs knife for most.
