Kiritsuke literally means "slit open". This knife is a cross between two different Japanese chef's knives, the Gyuto and the Yanagi. It's longer than the Gyuto, but with an angled tip unlike the Yanagi.
Use for slicing fish or fine slicing vegetables. With an angled tip, it can be used as either a sashimi knife or as an all-purpose knife.
Note: Comes with a WOODEN SAYA
