Kiritsuke - Umi
This Kiritsuke is a workhorse and is intended to be used over and over without fail. Its the longer edge makes it universal for larger products without losing precision cuts on smaller products.
The grind itself is more of a workhorse profile but is very thin for precision cuts as well. Its low compound grind parallel to the edge makes this a breeze to cut anything.
I left the traditional Japanese Kuroichi finish of
contrasting black and steel, for an authentic ancient but modern look.
No knife is the same as they are intended to be unique to their
