Proudly made in Seki city, Japan, this knife comes in a deluxe wooden box and a traditional Japanese "Aka-Ishime" finished blade saya.

The series name "Namishibuki" means wave splash of the ocean in English. The attractive black Damascus blade looks like wave splash of the ocean. Composed from 101 layers of Damascus with a high speed powder steel core and a sharp edge finished by skilled craftsmen from Seki city.

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.
