Double Bevel may be the reason I shouldn't buy the Shun Blue Kiritsuke then.

I'd have to see one. Shun single bevel knives are often IMO poorly ground - ground more like double bevel knives with a bevel on the front and back OTHER than the single bevel - essentially a v grind on a single bevel knife.

A traditional double bevel kiritsuke has a VERY delicate tip, so if you are comfortable with single bevel knives, this might just turn out to be an interesting knife. MIGHT being the word to emphasize. San mai Kiritsuke that is single bevel is a contradiction in terms.

If you go for it, let us know.

So if it is a single bevel style (like the Moritaka) again IMO that's a plus here, just to be clear. This is more a style like a gyuto FWIW.
