In Stock Item: 270mm Sujihiki Slicing Knife
New offering from our workshop!
If you appreciate a really sharp knife, you will love this 270mm sujihiki slicing knife! Preferred by professional chefs, this amazing knife will also please the most demanding home chef or collector.
You will be delighted with the look, feel and quality of this knife.
Hand-forged in Japan in the traditional Japanese style, it has the added benefit of having clad stainless steel sides and a double bevel edge, meaning it can be used equally well by either right or left-handed chefs or home cooks. The 270mm (approx. 10.5") blade has a shirogami carbon core for incredible sharpness and ease of sharpening with textured gray stainless sides for reduced sticking of foods during use.
It has a traditional 'wa' style partial tang design, though is not as lightweight as some traditional Japanese chef knives. Suitable even for men with larger than average hands, we have given the handle a bit longer length and depth and is perfectly balanced.
We have added a faceted handle made from exotic Hawaiian koa wood and Mozambique ebony both at the top and bottom of the handle for extra durability.
Please note that the blade edge is shirogami carbon steel, so extra maintenance is required to prevent either rust or dark spots just like you may remember from old knives your mom or grandma would have used prior to stainless steel becoming popular. We are happy to answer your questions about how to maintain and care for this amazing knife.
