Shun Blue 10" Kiritsuke Knife


Shun's Blue Steel Kiritsuke Knife is impressive to look at, but even more impressive to watch when in the right hands. The Kiritsuke is known as a master chef's knife and takes a decent amount of practice and skill to use this knife to its full potential. It should be noted that this knife is NOT a traditional Chef's knife and does not cut like one, either. The Kiritsuke will not "rock through" cuts, which takes a little getting used to. Once mastered, you can use the Kiritsuke for almost any job in the kitchen. Expert Japanese chefs typically use a Kiritsuke for anything from slicing and dicing vegetables to working with boneless meats and much more! The Blue Steel cutting core of this knife is sandwiched between layers of stainless steel. This combination of metals yields a blade with a 61 hardness rating on the Rockwell Hardness Scale.  The Kiritsuke and other Blue Steel knives are ultra sharp and retain their sharpness. Features a gray PakkaWood handle and comes with a Japanese-style sheath. Handcrafted in Japan. Lifetime Warranty. Shun item number  VG0008.

Shun Blue Steel Features

The newest line of high-end cutlery from Shun, the Blue Steel collection, was developed with the help of award-winning chef, Chris Cosentino. These knives were made using san mai construction, which consists of a "blue" carbon steel core interposed between two layers of shiny, polished stainless steel. The core has a 61 Rockwell Hardness rating, which provides incredible sharpness and edge retention. These knives have all the benefits of carbon steel without the hassles of maintenance usually associated with carbon steel knives. The Blue Steel knives feature knife blade shapes that excel at preparing or cutting proteins. Chef Cosentino is known for his work with proteins. Each knife blade displays a shiny, mirror polished stainless steel finish accented by a gray PakkaWood handle. Shun Blue Steel knives make great additions to the kitchens of professional and home cooks alike. Made in Japan.

About Shun

Shun in Japanese actually translates to "at the peak of perfection," and no words could better describe this outstanding company. Renowned for their traditional knife making style and aesthetic design, the highly skilled artisans at the Kai Corporation (the parent company of Shun) have been making blades of the highest quality in homage of the legendary sword smiths of Seki, Japan for over 100 years. Each and every knife is handmade, from beginning to end, requiring at least 100 meticulous steps along the way. It is out of this respect and admiration towards their ancestors, coupled with advanced technology and materials, that drives Shun to produce works of art that also happen to be razor-sharp knives.
