If your dad doesn’t have a favorite kitchen knife — he soon will. This fantastic Kitchen Master 8-inch chef knife from Kiru could definitely take the title — just in time for Father’s Day.

Perfect gift for Father’s Day: A traditional Japanese kitchen knife

From the moment you take this hardware out of the box, it’s downright hypnotic. That’s largely thanks to the 3-stage Japanese Honbazuke forging techniques and nitrogen cooling that creates swirling patterns on the blade.

Of course, it’s not meant to sit on the shelf and look pretty. This knife is well suited to any task, whether that’s boning fish, chopping carrots or precision mincing. The high-carbon stainless steel blade is folded into 67 layers, then tapered to a double bevel edge. That makes every cut smooth and consistent, and the core is thick enough that you can rock it back and forth on the cutting board for ages without tiring your hand.

Speaking of durability, this knife is built to keep its edge for the long term. Nitrogen cooling helps protect it against corrosion while still giving it just enough flexibility. That craftsmanship goes all the way down to the hilt, too: The G-10 Garolite handle holds fast through thousands of meal-prep sessions, and can hold up through the years as long as the blade can. It’s truly a showcase piece that will have Dad eager to cook his own Father’s Day dinner.

Through June 11, you can get the Kiru Kitchen Master knife for $79.97 — but be sure to order by June 5 to ensure delivery for Father’s Day.
