Kitsune Knives Review

I recently had the pleasure of testing out a chef knife from Kitsune Cutlery – the flagship product of an exciting new knife company capitalized with Kickstarter funding. In this article I’ll tell you why I enjoy using this knife and how you can check it out for yourself.

Why I enjoy the Kitsune Chef Knife

When it comes to the new Kitsune Chef Knives, there are 3 things I really like about them.

  1. They’re sharp! As with similar Japanese knives made with multilayered steel (in this case 67 layers of Damascus Steel), Kitsune’s chef knives have a razor sharp edge – perfect for making fine cuts in your home chef work.
  2. They’re beautiful! The craftsman Kitsune uses to make these blades do a fine job of hammering in beautiful patterns into the blades giving them a stunning appearance you’ll want to show off in your kitchen.
  3. They capture the spirit of Japanese Chefs – each knife comes in a gorgeous wooden gift box that showcases a Kitsune foxes looking at Mount Fuji. The boxes are then wrapped in one of six Furoshiki scarves. I was lucky enough to have mine in the Dancing Fox wrap as you can see here…

Overall I found the blade to be a great size for my home chef tasks – at 10 inches it’s in the sweet spot for a variety of tasks and the knife design allows you to easily perform cutting, chopping, rocking, and more.

While my favorite knives are still made by Dalstrong, I also enjoy using my new Kitsune knife too. If you’re in the market for a new chef knife and a Dalstrong is out of your price range, but you still want to try your hand at Japanese Steel, you’d do well to consider a Kitsune Knife.
