Our handmade Yoshihiro Mizu Yaki Blue Steel Super Suminagashi knives are crafted with extraordinary skill by our master artisans. Exemplifying the most intricate techniques of forging, layering, and hammering, Aoko Blue Steel Super with a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 65-66, is forged with iron to create the most elaborate of finishes. Suminagashi translates as floating ink and refers to the beautiful marbled wave like patterns that extend through the blade from the tip to the heel, unveiling a new mosaic with every sharpening. Only the most skilled of artisans can forge together these metals in such complex puzzle piece formations to fashion knives of this caliber with the highest quality, blending aesthetics and performance.
Our Yoshihiro Blue Steel Super Suminagashi knives are complimented with a traditional Japanese style handcrafted Octagonal Ebony Wooden handle affixed with a Double redwood bolster with sterling Silver Ring. One of the most essential knives a chef and a cook can have is a Japanese slicing knife known as a Sujihiki knife. Using the best ingredients requires the right tools. From slicing filets of fish fresh from the fish monger to carving a roast chicken straight from the oven, even the simplest tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional. The Sujihiki slicer is perfect for fabricating large roasts to thinly slicing cucumbers or smoked salmon. Yoshihiro Sujihiki slicing knives are perfect for table side carving during holidays and special occasions.
