Hitohira KH Stainless Kiritsuke Gyuto 210mm Imitation Mahogany Handle
The KH line of knives is fantastic for those looking for a high-performing stainless steel blade. The right-handed bias knives are equipped with an imitation mahogany pakka wood handle that has been buffed and smoothed for a comfortable cutting experience. The out of the box edges are polished for a wicked sharp edge; one of the best lines of knives for the price and 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 mostly offers aesthetic power boost (rough guess 50%).
