    • Chopping and dicing: With its wide blade and sharp edge, a kiritsuke knife can efficiently handle chopping and dicing tasks. It allows you to swiftly and accurately dice vegetables, herbs, and other ingredients.
    • Vegetable preparation: The flat profile and straight edge of a kiritsuke knife make it well-suited for preparing vegetables. It can be used to make thin, even slices, julienne cuts, and intricate vegetable garnishes.
