Kiritsuke are considered the multipurpose traditional Japanese knives, and can be used a primary knife in your kitchen for easy cutting on meats, vegetables, fruits and many more. A kiritsuke is very visually appealing due to its unique shape. A number of makers now produce double bevel kiritsukes, often called kiritsuke gyutos, for western users who appreciate the striking aesthetics of the profile but need the added versatility of a double bevel grind.
Traditionally, these knives are used only by the executive chefs as a symbol of status!
