Kaishin Migaki – Kiritsuke 150mm
Kaishin knives are forged by a small group of blacksmiths in Tosa city, Japan. These knives are great value for money. Made from beautiful steel they have a rustic feel and are quite light even when compared to other Japanese knives.
Traditionally a single bevel knife, but most modern Kiritsuke knives are now double beveled, miking it functional for both lef-handed and right-handed users.
The Kiritsuke profile is often quite flat, offering great contact with your cutting board.
It also offers a thin drop tip, which is great for precision work and getting into those nooks and crannies.

- Wash and dry the blade by hand immediately after use. Dishwashers are very bad for all knives.
- Use a soft cloth to wash the blade. Avoid abrasive dish scrubbers and powders as these can damage the finish of your beautiful knife.
- Do not cut through bones. You can certainly cut along/beside bones, but do not cut into bones. This can, at worst, chip the blade.
- Never use this knife to cut frozen food. I’m sure you have a 4×4 somewhere in your kitchen for this job.
- Never twist or cleave the blade.
- Always use a wooden or plastic cutting board. Never cut on bamboo, glass, marble, slate, a plate, china, marble, arborite or anything harder than steel.
- Store knives in a way that the blades will not knock into each other.
- Never transport knives unprotected.
