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 can carve and fabricate large roasts and other meats and fish, and can be used for thinly slicing other ingredients such as cucumbers or smoked salmon. It makes it perfect for use in its original purpose of industrial machinery, but also excellent in high end kitchen knives which require long lasting edge retention.
Forged and hammered with 46 layers of steel in the Damascus tradition with a VG-10 Core, this knife is complimented with a traditional Japanese style handcrafted Octagonal Red Pine Handle. A protective wooden sheath called a Saya is included, which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use. The hammered texture of the blade eliminates friction and keeps food from sticking to the blade. Every knife from Yoshihiro is handcrafted by master artisans creating a unique one of a kind work of art.
