    I think we all need to adopt some new kind of name for the Kiritsuke tip gyuto, to alleviate the confusion of calling it a Kiritsuke. They are only similar in the shape of the tip.
    I suggest:
    Kiritsukyuto
    Kiritipi-yuto
    Gyutokitsuke


    That's........ even more complicated. Sword tip Gyuto.

    for those that want to be dorky and japanese, that would translate to kengata gyuto or kensaki gyuto

    Nope, not specific enough.
    What kind of sword?
    A Rapier-tip gyuto?
    A Claymore-tip gyuto?
    A Panzerstecher-tip gyuto?
    A Bastard tip?
    A Khopesh-tip?
    A Spartan-tip?
    A Hopite-tip?
    Last but not least.............
    .....the Samurai Tip!!!!!?????!??!?!?????

    LOL...I'm with you on this. I try to make sure that I use kiritsuke/gyuto, not just kiritsuke because they are completely different beasts. The times I don't make the distinction are generally when I feel the context makes it clear. Does that make sense? Anyway, even if it's not a true kiritsuke (i.e. single bevel sword tip) the kiritsuke style gyuto can be a great knife and is probably far more useful to most people then a true kiritsuke. Again, have to ask, does that make sense? It's late, I've had some wine, may be talking out of my a$$.

    Be well,

    the latest love affair with the new black (and hopefully last with this style....), the spawn of western marketing meets Japanese traditional knives. It really is a cool looking blade, but it's also the santuko of blades over 210mm.
    As a gyuto replacement, I would find the relatively low blade height, pointy tip and ultra flat edge profile to be a disadvantage to my knife technique or demands

    Kensaki Gyuto sounds good to me - and we're not adding an extra word and a hyphen. Just because it's a long knife doesn't mean it needs a long name.

    I like my name ideas better. I'm going to start using all of them depending on my mood at the time.
