Classical Kiritsuke knife is a multipurpose knife (mix between Yanagiba (Japanese fish slicer) and Usuba (Japanese vegetable knife)). The hallmark of Kiritsuke is a squared-off blade tip, giving it a very unique and brutal design. Recently, because of this design (brutal look), the Kiritsuke knife has become very popular among home cooking enthusiasts worldwide. But for Western cuisine is more typical to deal with red meat rather than fresh fish. For this reason, some of the modern Kiritsuke knives have the same blade shape as a Gyuto knife but with a squared-off blade tip. Usualy, Kiritsuke blade lengths range from 190mm to 340mm (210-240mm most popular). The handle can be Western or Japanese style. Japanese Kiritsuke knife is the coolest look multipurpose knife in the kitchen.

I bought this one and it exceeded my expectations. The handle was comfortable in my hands, which was my main concern when purchasing online.
