DESCRIPTION

Hitohira Futana Kiritsuke (Gyuto Hybird) Kuro, Tsuchime, 210mm:

A lot of knives that have a Kuro (black) finish are often soft iron clad. They have no corrosion resistance and may rust easily if mistreated.
This knife is stainless clad but still has a super blue steel core meaning you get the best of both worlds.
A High carbon cutting edge and some corrosion resistance on the outside.

A Super blue steel core will make quick work of prep jobs and hold its edge very well. 

The "K-tip" of this knife allows excellence control for anyone with good knife skills. 

The kiritsuke shape is much more suited to a push/pull chopping technique. While a rocking motion with this knife is still possible, the shape of this knife has a lot less roll compare to a normal gyuto making it a great all-rounder for slicing and chopping also.
The kiritsuke is traditionally used only by executive chefs in Japan.

*The core steel in this knife is subject to corrosion, so be sure to follow knife care instructions to help avoid surface rust.
Be careful not to scratch off the black cladding. Once it has gone you can't get it back!
*The cutting edge will patina and darken with use.
