The 8.5” Gladiator Series double-bevel Kiritsuke is a push cut and slicing specialist. Designed with a sword-like front end, this visually stunning blade is a high-performance instrument of exceptional effectiveness. The flat geometry of the blade’s edge facilitates push-cuts over rocking cuts, making it an ideal choice for those chefs who prepare large numbers of vegetables. The Kiritsuke blends the Japanese Yanagiba (fish slicer) with a Usuba (vegetable knife) making it a versatile alternative to a chef’s knife. This is one knife worth having in your knife roll.

Featuring a beautiful, ergonomic, and ambidextrous imported black G10 Garolite handle imported from Spain (laminated for extra strength, sanitation, and water/stain resistance) the Gladiator Series kiritsuke knife is carefully designed for maximum control and effectiveness. This knife is as pleasing to hold as it is to look at, featuring a perfectly engineered balance with satisfying heft and presence. The hand-polished bolster adds counterweight and offers finger protection, while the triple rivets (with signature Dalstrong center rivet) in the handle ensure the highest level of strength and robustness.
