Gesshin Uraku 270mm Blue #2 Left-Handed Kiritsuke

  • Our Gesshin Uraku line represents a great value in kitchen cutlery.   For a long time we have been searching for a line of single bevel knives with a great balance of quality and value.  We’ve finally found them.  This Gesshin Uraku line fits the bill perfectly.  This knife is made from hitachi blue #2 steel and happens to be a left handed knife.  They come with ho wood octagonal handles and matching ho wood sayas.  Unlike many low cost single bevel knives, these ones are very well finished and have significantly less problems than lower cost knives (all knives have some imperfections… even high end knives… but these have less high and low spots, less sharp non-cutting edges, less prevalence of wavy backs, less prevalence of torsional twisting, etc.). The handles on these knives come with either black, marble, or blonde buffalo horn. We can not take specific requests, but feel free to check with us about what we have in stock.

     

    These knives are great for enthusiasts and for professionals looking for a great, functional work knife.  We hope you enjoy this line from Gesshin Uraku.  Please keep in mind that kiritsuke are knives intended to combine the function of usuba and yanagiba, and can be more difficult to use for beginners.
