The Sujihiki slicer is a double-edged knife 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. Our Yoshihiro Hayate Inox Aus-8 Sujihiki Japanese Chefs Knife features a traditional Japanese convex grind (Hamaguri-ba). This is the same grind that was utilized in Japanese sword making and it excels in sharpness, durability and ease of sharpening. Forged from a single piece of high carbon Aus-8 stainless steel, this knife is complemented by an integrated hollow stainless steel handle that is molded for comfort and ribbed for safe grip. It is welded directly onto the blade to make for a durable, long lasting knife that is also easy to clean and sanitary.
