      Kiritsuke knives have a few multipurpose traditional Japanese blades. They can be used as a Yanagi (slicing knife) or an Usuba (vegetable knife). These sword-shaped knives feature a straighter edge than a Yanagi for vegetables and a longer blade than an Usuba for slicing fish with ease.

      Blue (Aogami) #2 (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is made by adding Chromium and Tungsten / Wolfram to White Steel #2. This results in increased toughness and the production of hard carbide molecules, which improve edge retention. Many knife users have noted that while Blue Steel #2 is very similar to White Steel #2 in terms of edge sharpness, it has slightly superior edge retention.

      Black-finish is a state in which the surface that has been blackened by quenching is sharpened only with the blade, leaving the black side unintentionally on the sides ( Mine & Hira ) other than the blade. 

      There is no elegance like a polished finish, but it has a taste of bumps and ruggedness. It also has the advantage of less rust than a polished finish.


      • After using the knife, wash it well with detergent, etc., and then wipe off the water well. 
      • (especially on the blade).
      • Do not hit or twist the cutting edge and cut frozen foods.
      • Use a sharpening stone to maintain the sharpness of the blade.
