Kagemitsu Sadamune Kiritsuke, 150mm

This short Japanese chef's knife has a core of Japanese Aogami #2 carbon steel with a protective layer (Sanmai) on the outside. This double-sided sharpened knife has a black (Kurochi) protective layer. This knife is completely forged by hand in the forge of the Sadamune family in the small village of Tosa. The blade is very thin and manually sharpened and has no thickening, making sharpening very easy. This knife is not delivered razor sharp. If you would like this knife delivered sharp, you can have us polish the edge with the polishing service.

This knife is forged and sharpened by hand and may have some scratches or irregularities. The handle is made of walnut wood with a plastic bolster, the bolster may have some residual traces from the production process.

  • Blade length: 150 mm
  • Total length: 285 mm
  • Weight: 80-90 grams
  • Steel type: core steel: Japanese Aogami #2 steel "Blue paper steel" (not stainless) with 2 layers of softer steel on the outside and black Kurochi protective layer.
  • Hardness: 61 + -1 (Rockwell C)
  • Handle: D-shaped walnut wood with black plastic head
  • These knives are not rust resistant and sensitive to oxidation. Over time a patina will develop, but this is easily removed with a medium abrasive pad and some steel polish.

These knives are sharpened from the forge to approximately grit 2000, making them sharp but not "razor sharp". If you would like to have the knives polished, you can have us do this. Add our "Edge polishing service" to your order and we will then polish the edge to 12,000 grit for a razor-sharp result.
Like all Japanese knives, the handmade Sadamune knives are not dishwasher safe, cleaning and drying after each use is the best treatment for these exclusive products.

There are no wooden Sayas available for this knife.
