You've thought knives are cool ever since you watched Tom and Jerry throw them at each other, then learned they were dangerous when you tried to recreate the fun with your little brother, but eventually, you discovered that they're also really useful. Celebrate this ancient, endlessly refined tool by freshening up your kitchen knives on this holiest of chopping days, National Knife Day, when all the knives in the Cracked Shop are on sale. If you’re really looking to pay homage to ancient traditions, we’d like to point you specifically to The Kiru Knife(TM) Original Kirisuke 8" All-Round Knife.

This multipurpose traditional Japanese blade can be used for all kinds of kitchen cutting. It supports rocking, chopping, and all other cutting styles so you can use it as a fish slicer (Yanagi), an Usuba (vegetable knife), and much more. (You'll have to look up the Japanese terminology for other methods -- we're out.) The precision-forged blades on this knife are made with 67 layers of high-carbon stainless cladding for exceptional strength, durability, and resistance, and it’s nitrogen-cooled for enhanced flexibility, corrosion resistance, and hardness, just like -- wait. No. No nitrogen on our wieners.

Where were we? Oh, yeah. This versatile blade offers an eight-to-twelve-degree angle for slicing and dicing the bejesus out of anything that is foolish enough to get in your way. The ergonomic G-10 Garolite handle is impervious to heat, cold, and moisture while giving you the control and comfort you need to whip through all your meal prep in a jiffy.

We know you love knives. We know you celebrate National Knife Day. We're making it more fun to celebrate. Right now, you can get The Kiru Knife(TM) Original Kirisuke 8" All-Round Knife for 46% off $149 at just $79.99 until August 31.
