What is a Kiritsuke knife?

A kiritsuke knife made from Damascus steel is primarily used in Asian cuisine, where it is used to make sashimi and sushi. It is also often used for fillet slicing or as a paring knife. A damask kiritsuke knife is ideal for processing, preparing and gutting fish.

What makes a Damascus Kiritsuke knife so special?

The difference to the normal Kiritsuke knife

The biggest difference between an adelmayer Damascus Kiritsuke knife and a standard Kiritsuke knife lies in the materials used and the tapered blade tip. This combination makes your Damascus Kiritsuke knife the champion of your knife collection.


Blade shape/length

The 20 cm long blade ensures a perfect cutting result. In combination with the 4.5 cm wide blade, you can also make long, deep cuts cleanly when gutting and filleting your fish.


Your adelmayer Damascus Kiritsuke knife is sharpened exclusively by hand. This means you can fillet and portion your food in the future without much effort.

Sharpness, degree of hardness, material

Thanks to the fire-welded Damascus steel, an adelmayer Damascus Kiritsuke knife achieves a Rockwell hardness of 60+-2. The hand-ground blade and the ergonomic wooden handle make the overall package perfect.


The Kiritsuke knife from adelmayer impresses with the greatest ease of use you can imagine. It weighs just over 200 grams and sits securely in the hand. After the first cut, you will never want to prepare your sushi with another knife again.


The handle of your adelmayer Damascus Kiritsuke knife is made of fine walnut wood. Ergonomically shaped, it adapts to every palm and offers you a perfect cut.
