The KAI Shun Classic White 15 cm Kiritsuke Knife is used for the same tasks with a chef's knife, it offers top cutting performance and versatility and it is ideal for slicing and push-cuts.
Kiritsuke is the only multipurpose traditional Japanese knife, (in Japan only the executive chef in the kitchen is allowed to use one).
It performs Julienne, dice, or brunoise cuts with ease. It is also an excellent choice for cleaning and portioning boneless proteins and particularly fish.
It slices cooked proteins easily and gracefully and features a slightly curved edge so that it even works well with rocking cuts.
The Limited Edition knife was named 'KAI Shun Classic White Kiritsuke'. Only 5555 pieces of this knife are produced.
Aside from the fact that this knife has a unique look and feel, it is only limitedly available.
Of course all knives are numbered to make sure you know which number you have purchased!
The KAI Shun Classic White line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped white PakkaWood handles.
The core layer of the knife is made from V-Gold-MAX-steel. This is an extremely hard (61±1 HRC, 1.0% carbon, 1.5% cobalt) and corrosion-resistant steel that gives the blade a sharpness that is second to none and an incredible edge retention.
The core is clad with Damascus stainless steel with 16 layers in each side (33 total), then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.
The convex cut of the blade together with the manual honing of each Shun knife delivers an unrivalled sharpness that allows the knife to cut through even the toughest material.
The edge on a Shun Classic knife is beveled at a 16° angle creating a very sharp edge.
The knife features an ash-coloured pakkawood (wood plastic composite material) handle D-shaped, which looks and feels like wood, but is dishwasher safe. The other unique feature of the handle is the design. The D-shaped handle actually has a ridge at the bottom, increasing control and grip.
The Shun Classic White is a limited edition line and is similar to the original Shun Classic.
Handcrafted in Japan with a lifetime warranty.
