Shun Blue Kiritsuke 10"
The Shun Blue 10-in. Kiritsuke is one gorgeous knife—yet it takes some practice to be able to use it properly. That's why it's known as the Japanese master chef's knife. The master will be able to use the kiritsuke for a wide variety of kitchen tasks. For instance, it works extremely well with vegetables; use it to make a beautiful julienne, dice, or brunoise. Shave chives and scallions. It's also an excellent choice for cleaning and portioning boneless proteins, and particularly fish. It slices cooked proteins with grace and ease. In fact, it's so sharp and fine that some cooks even use it in place of a mandolin! It won't rock through cuts like a traditional chef's knife, but once you work with it, you'll find yourself reaching for your Shun Blue Kiritsuke more and more often.
