Sujihikis are the Japanese version of our carving knife, designed to be thin and long so the meat can be carved in one cut, meaning no ridges and retaining as much moisture as possible.
Made of Aogami blue #2 steel and clad in stainless steel this is knife that has the best of both worlds, the joy of carbon but with the easy to care for addition of stainless cladding.
This is hand-made knife therefore each one is unique, the hammered finish really is a sight to behold, you can really get a sense of the fact that it was hand-made in a forge.
Very thin behind the edge with an excellent grind, but that's what you get from a blacksmith with over 50 years experience!
