Made in Sakai, Osaka
Kiristuke is originally a knife for slicing a Japanese dish called "Yosemono" or "Nagashimono", which is made of agar. Since its long straight blade is similar to Yanagiba and Usuba, it is often used for slicing sashimi and cutting vegetables too.
Shirogami No.2 carbon steel has a good balance of retention of the edge and easiness to sharpen.
