Made in Japan by a 4th generation workshop established in Tosa completely by hand forged from Aogami Blue #2 Steel. The Kaizen Carbon Steel series is known to not only take a very sharp edge, but also to provide the user with an optimal cutting experience while keeping in mind the edge geometry and balance which both play a large role in the performance of a knife. To compliment this beautiful piece of art, the Kakushin Kanji can be found engraved on the side of the blade to demonstrate our long lasting relationship (革新). 

Kiritsuke are known as a multipurpose traditional Japanese chef knife. A Kiritsuke is visually appealing due to its unique shape and extremely popular as a primary knife in any kitchen to cut meats, vegetables, fruits and many more. Several makers now produce double-bevel Kiritsukes, often called Kiritsuke Gyutos which are ideal for users who appreciate the striking aesthetics of the profile but need the added versatility and ease of sharpening of a double bevel grind.

Traditionally, these knives were only used by the Executive Chefs as a symbol of status.
