Hitohira Imojiya TH Damascus Kiritsuke Gyuto 240mm Pakka Handle (Red)
If you are looking for knives that are easy to maintain with a beautiful finish and a unique handle that can hold a durable edge, look no further than the Imojiya TH Damascus line. The handle has a good dense/weighty feeling without being bulky and will accommodate folks with larger hands well too. We recommend these knives to any cooks looking to invest in a series of knives scoring high in both aesthetic as well as performance.
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 offers an aesthetic power boost (rough guess 50%).
