The Kiridashi Knife proves you don’t have to be fancy to get the job done. This ultra-simple traditional Japanese knife, originally designed for precise craft making and wood carving, is also the perfect all-purpose utility knife. The Kiridashi blade is beveled on one side making it a thinner edge and sometimes sharper than two sided beveled blades. This thinner edge allows for extremely fine cuts, more leverage at the edge and tip, and reduced overall sharpening time. You’ll be surprise at the versatility of this blade considering the minimal amount of blade length you actually use when cutting or chopping. The Kiridashi is made in Japan with a special solid steel (forge-welded ore and tough iron), and comes standard with no additional wood or leather handle.
