Shun Classic Kiritsuke Knife

Denise Landis

Denise Landis is the founder & CEO of The Cook's Cook.

The Shun Classic Kiritsuke is a multipurpose chef’s knife, the work horse of the kitchen. Julienne, slice, dice, and chop…it works equally well on vegetables, poultry, fish, and meats.

Handcrafted in Japan, the Shun Classic Kiritsuke has an 8-inch razor-sharp blade with 34 layers of Damascus cladding on each side. Its D-shaped ebony-finished Pakkawood handle is comfortable for left and right handed users.

James Beard award-winning Chef JJ Johnson, author of Between Harlem and Heaven, writes “I believe that everyone should own at least one ‘chef’s knife’ that can do it all, such as the kiritsuke. It is great for prep service, can be used with meat and is especially good for cleaning fish. Great for veggies and fruits too. ”
