The Tatara Evolution is the knife which was created after the huge success of our original Tatara. The feedback for the new edition has been phenomenal, but some customers have asked for a new kiritsuke knife of the same series, which should be lighter and smaller, but just as sharp and beautiful. After hard work and many trials with our experienced blacksmiths we are now excited to present you our Evolution Kiritsuke.
This knife is full of history and generations of experience from professional blacksmiths who created a new standard of craftsmanship. For this knife we use only the best German tungsten clip steel which is shaped by hand before being heat treated using the traditional techniques of master blacksmiths.
The old and secretive hardening technology is based on generations of know-how and gives this knife a hardness between 57 and 58 HRC. This not only provides extreme and long-lasting sharpness but also makes the sharpening process easy for you.
This knife is best suited for cutting all kinds of meat, as well as for cutting vegetables. Due to the thin forged blade it can also be used for very precise cutting work.
The non-slip handle is crafted from high quality ash wood in a complex process and is held together by two brass rings. The full tang integrated steel shank ensures durability. The handle is also waterproof, antibacterial and heat resistent.
All in all this knife is a beautiful piece of handmade art, so make sure you clean and dry the knife immediately after usage to ensure it lasting for a lifetime!
