The Sujihiki is a long narrow blade designed for slicing any raw or cooked flesh (meat, poultry, game & fish) with consummate ease. The reduced surface area means that even the most fatty or oily flesh does not stick to the side of the blade. The Granton dimples just make this even more efficient. If Smoked Salmon, Ham on the bone and other ‘sticky flesh’ are your prime tasks then this is your best solution at this price range. This Suisin Inox Western Style Sujihiki measures 240/270/300mm on the blade. Suisin Inox are made by a combination of INOX carbon steel with an addition of Molybdenum and Chromium. The result are knives that are both rust resistant and can hold an exceptionally sharp edge. We really like these knives and they make a great introduction to Japanese knives for those just beginning to explore them. The knives are hand finished which gives them extreme sharpness out of the box.
SPECIAL NOTES: Not to be used on bone or for ANY kind of twisting or prising. CUT ONLY on wood or HDP. Do not allow Knives to be abused as screwdrivers, tin openers or for any use other than food preparation. ONLY FOR CULINARY USE.
