A kiritsuke-gyuto is a chef's knife with a slanted tip from a traditional single-sided blade called a kiritsuke. It is essentially a chef's knife with a twist. It serves the same function as an all-purpose knife, and although some swear that the accentuated tip makes it easier to execute fine cuts, we find that the k-tip mostly offers aesthetic power boost (rough guess 50%).
