Kuro Kuma KA 240mm Kiritsuke
Traditionally the Kiritsuke is a kataba (single sided) blade but that makes it more difficult to use for most. The Kuro Kuma KA Kiritsuke is set with a 50/5o bevel to make it easy to use for everyone.
Kagami Knife Series
The Kagami series is hammer forged from powder steel encased in layers of softer damascus. While the 3mm thickness sounds a little thicker than most it tapers very quickly to a fine cutting edge and when combined with a mirror (kagami) finish slips through food effortlessly.
The surface of the blade is highly reflective and to highlight the layers of damascus that have been also lightly acid etched we have photographed the blade with both a light and dark reflection. Sometimes the most important feature of a blade is something you can’t see and in this case the heat treatment and consistency of the blade hardness is among the best we have experienced.
Handles are made from our existing stocks of African Blackwood along with Mallee Burl bolsters.
- Powder steel damascus
- Blackwood handle
- 50/50 edge grind for left and right handed users

Note: blade is stainless steel in colour, it is not black. Due to mirror finish it shows a dark surface when reflecting dark colours or a light colour surface when reflecting light colours.
