*Please kindly note customs fees may be charged when you recieve your items.
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.
- NOT dishwasher safe
- To prevent rust, thoroughly wipe the knife after washing.
- Apply a thin layer of oil on the blade before storing to protect it from humidity and make it more rust resistant.
