Description: Sujihiki are slicers or carving knives that are well suited for slicing and portioning meats and fish due to the slender, long blade. Extremely sharp, they are well suited to preparing sushi and sashimi.
Each knife is individually hand-forged beginning with a high carbon stainless steel core (hagane). This is surrounded by many layers of high contrast nickel Damascus. This time consuming process creates a knife with outstanding edge holding and beauty. The blade is distal tapered for optimal balance and has an extremely thin, keen edge for high performance.
The "Wa" style handle is octagon in shape and is sculpted from macassar ebony with a pakka wood ferrule. This natural, ambidextrous handle style is easy to grip and lasts a lifetime. Like other kitchen knives, this knife should not be put in a dishwasher.
