Kanetsugu Zuiun Series R-2 Damascus KZD-3 Kiritsuke (Bunka) 210mm (8.2 Inch)

Availability: Normally ships the same day


 Ever since we first started to offer Kanetsugu knives to our customers, back in 2006, we have received many positive comments about Kanetsugu’s knives. Our customers especially praise the sharpness, cutting performance and high standard of manufacturing. The secret behind these words of praise is, or course, Kanetsugu’s original convex edge geometry.

 This year, Kanetsugu celebrates their 100th year in business. To celebrate this special anniversary, Kanetsugu have produced some beautiful and practical 'next-generation' R-2 Damascus Kiritsuke knives, which deliver an even higher level of cutting performance!

 Kiritsuke knives are becoming much more commonplace and popular amongst culinary professionals and Chefs because, similar to a multi-purpose Santoku or Bunka knife, they have a very capable blade shape that can perform a wide variety of cutting tasks.

 The Heptagonal (Seven-sided) Brown Pakka Wood Handle has a Black Pakka Wood Ferrule, a White Spacer and a decorative Mosaic Pin. This elegant, high-quality handle beautifully matches the stylish Kiritsuke blade shape and the overall design. Kanetsugu’s uses their own modern manufacturing technologies to create this practical, high-quality handle, which is water-resistant, crack-resistant and easy to clean.

 These new Kanetsugu ZUIUN knives stand out from other similar products for three reasons:

1. Kanetsugu’s original convex edge geometry;

2. The performance and practicality offered by the R-2 steel blade;

3. The stylish looks, versatility and practicality of the Kiritsuke blade shape.

 We think the new Kanetsugu ZUIUN R-2 Damascus knives are products worthy of celebrating Kanetsugu’s 100 year anniversary and we greatly respect Katesugu’s long history, their knife making expertise and their desire to find a harmonious balance between modern manufacturing methods and traditional craft skills.

 Each ZUIUN R-2 Damascus Kiritsuke knife comes with a stylish ZUIUN Black Lacquered Wooden Saya and a Kiri (Paulownia) Wood Presentation Box.

 The lightweight, double bevel edged Kiritsuke might be compared to a combination of the Nakiri and the Sujihiki. It is a very versatile knife that can be used to perform many of the tasks normally done with a Gyuto.

This knife comes with 50/50 double bevel edge geometry for both right and left handed use.

For your information, Japanese Kitchen knives are generally designed for right hand use with a slightly thicker and rounded grinding on the right side blade and a less rounded (almost straight flat) grinding on the left side blade. However, both right and left hander can use the knives. 

We believe the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and sharp edge with your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for long times.

Important

This is the Powdered High Speed Tool Steel blade kitchen knife that has a rust resistance for easy maintenance. However, it may get rust, if kept in wet condition.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.
  • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet condition for long time.
  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes, and keep it in dry place.
  • This is an extremely sharp knife. Please use special cares in using and storing it.
  • Unlike German made knives, Japanese knife blades are ground to thin cutting edge for sharper cutting and easier re-sharpening. Please protect the edge from hitting hard materials to avoid chipping or cracking.
  • Please do not use it to cut bone or frozen foods, any hard shell foods such as lobster and crab.
  • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.

        Excellent service, Excellent knife

        I was a bit hesitant to purchase the carbon steel knife, so I got this stainless steel Japanese knife as my first! Beautiful - the packaging and the knife itself - simply amazing. I wish I took the plunge and got the carbon steel, but I will get one most certainly Shipping and customer service was excellent - responsive and gave great advice. Thank you for an excellent product and excellent service

        Best I have used

        I really like this knife. Very light and balanced and flexible in use. The tip is very nice for fine detail work and slices like a dream. This for me is an all around knife, it's the very best knife I own.
