In Japanese culture, the use of kiritsuke is reserved for chefs.
This blade is forged from super Aogami steel, with a remarkable hardness of 63-64 HRC. The blade has a kurouchi (as-forged) finish.
The handle was made with a dyed and stabilized black ash burl, copper and resin spacers, synthetic amber bolster.
