Details

The Japanese Kiridashi is a multi function single right bevelled knife. Often sold as a Japanese marking knife, the stiff, single bevelled blade of the Kiridashi truly excels at heavier cuts; leather, veneers etc. Kiridashi are also wonderful tools for carving, they are used in Japanese kitchens for carving vegetables into ornate decorative flowers. Their suitability for carving also makes the Kiridashi a favourite tool for luthierie (stringed instrument making).

Our Kiridashi are handmade in Japan by Okeya, a traditional family blacksmithing business that has specialised in Kogatana knives (of which Kiridashi are a sub-type) since 1927. They have lately started producing a range of very good value kitchen knives as well.

We have selected a ground finish so these knives are slightly thinner than the standard hammer finished version. The bluing that occurs during heat treatment is left on, providing an aesthetically pleasing surface that is both grippy and corrosion resistant. The rear of the blade is very finely ground into a shallow depression or ‘ura’ that facilitates ease of honing, as a finishing touch each blade is then honed by hand.
