Our Limited Edition Yoshihiro Hayate Series is forged with extraordinary skill and exquisitely hand-sharpened by our master artisans. This particular knife series has been forged in extremely high temperatures to achieve a hardness level that is unusual in VG-10 stainless steel knives. The knife is then meticulously hand-sharpened with great care and skill in order to achieve a perfect balance between high-performance and the ease of maintenance from a semi-stainless steel blade. Our Hayate Series is complimented with a traditional Japanese style handcrafted Rosewood handle with Ebony bolsters 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 sap in Japan.
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. Hand wash with mild cleanser; NSF Approved; Handmade by skilled tradesmen in Japan.
