Kiritsuke: In a traditional Japanese kitchen, the kiritsuke is a single beveled knife reserved only for the head chef to use. Now it has become a popular 50/50 beveled all purpose knife that can replace the gyuto. Slice meat, chiffonade herbs, chop veg, this knife is a bad-ass alternative to the gyuto.

Carbon steel knife care
-Please note, this knife is made with high carbon steel.
-Carbon steel knives are amazing, they get super sharp, and are easy to sharpen.
-However, they are more likely to rust than their stainless counterparts.
-Please wipe clean and dry immediately after use.
-Always wash with mild detergent by hand.
-Avoid very acidic foods like lemons, limes, and tomatoes.
-After time you will develop a grey hue on your knife, this is called patina. The healthier the patina, the less likely it is your knife will develop rust.
-If you happen to notice rust forming, please use a soft sponge and soapy water to remove. Dry and oil your blade afterwards.
-Be mindful of your cutting surface, this knife likes end-grain wood cutting boards best. If you do not own one, please use a plastic board only.
-A fine edged knife like this likes to be used in a forward and backward motion only, do not move this knife laterally across the cutting board.
