One of the most essential knives a chef can have is a Japanese slicing knife known as a Sujihiki knife. The Sujihiki is a slicing knife with a long narrow blade that smoothly slices through meat or vegetables and preserves the integrity of each ingredient’s freshness. The Sujihiki slicer is perfect for fabricating large roasts to thinly slicing cucumbers or smoked salmon.
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. Every knife from Yoshihiro is handcrafted by master artisans creating a unique one-of-a-kind work of art.
Ginsan-Ko knives incorporate traditional methods of knife making with modern metallurgy. Ginsan-Ko is a breakthrough in the incorporation of highest quality high carbon steel and stain resistant metallic elements. With a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 62-63, they offer a rare combination of traditional Japanese high carbon knives with stainless steel properties. Ginsan Wa Gyuto knives are complimented with a traditional Japanese style handcrafted Octagonal Rosewood handle equipped with a protective wooden sheath called a “Saya,” which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use. This specific Saya included with the knife is brush coated with non-toxic lacquer coating made from organic tree saps in Japan. A favorite among chefs in need of a high performance knife that delivers over long hours without the hassle of dulling or staining.
