SKS Philippines Japanese Kiritsuke Knife
Kiritsuke: hybrid with the length of yanagiba and the blade height and profile of usuba with an angled tip as a compromise. Requires great knife control because of the height, length, and flatness. General size is 240 mm to 300 mm. Usage: one of the few multipurpose traditional Japanese blades, and can be used as a yanagi (fish slicer) or an usuba (vegetable knife). These sword shaped knives feature a straighter edge than a yanagi for vegetables, and a longer blade than an usuba for slicing fish with ease.
