Kiritsuke knife, SRS15 powder steel, migaki finish - Akifusa

£198.50 Regular price £230.00

The Akifusa range of knives represent exceptional value with top notch fit and finish usually found on much more expensive knives.

SHAPE: Kiritsuke gyuto. This is basically a Gyuto with a funky drop tip on it. Sometimes they can have a flatter profile more suited to slicing but generally they are very similar to Gyutos

STEEL: SRS15. Powder steels are a relatively new breed of steels generally used in industrial applications where toughness is key. In the knife world this means better edge retention in the form of higher hardness but unlike traditional steels with these attributes they are a lot less chippy.

FINISH: Polished or migaki  

HANDLE: D shaped rosewood handle with a pakkawood ferrule. Theoretically this is a right handers handle but I know loads of people who happily use them left handed. 

LENGTH: 210mm length.

MAKER: Akifusa - Sanjo, Japan

BEST FOR: An interesting take on a gyuto with a drop K-tip for precision.

SAUNDERS SAYS: "The fit and finish on these knives is phenomenal and they are nice and skinny with a great grind."

These knives are hand-forged so there may be slight variations in measurements and finishes.
