Kotai Kiritsuke // 8" Chef Knife // Hammered Blade
Expertly handcrafted, perfectly balanced, and ultra durable, KOTAI bridges the gap between Eastern and Western knife making to bring the best of both worlds into a single, hybrid design.
The Kiritsuke can perform versatile range of functions and is a favorite go-to knife for many Japanese chefs. In fact, in most fine restaurants only the head chef is allowed to use them, therefore the Kiritsuke is often considered to be a symbol of expertise and status. KOTAI’s Kiritsuke is made of Japanese AUS-8, a premium steel that balances a high carbon content for hardness, sharpness, and edge retention with the perfect amount of chromium to prevent corrosion.
