Designed for carving, this truly makes light work of big pieces of meat. Looks stunning beautiful to boot.
Longer and thinner than a Gyuto (Japanese chef's knife), these Sujihiki knives make the perfect carving knife. The long, narrow blade allows for fewer strokes which limits drag to make cutting easier. The beautiful hammered finish also reduces the surface area meaning the meat has less to cling to.

What is a knife?
The sujihiki is the Japanese equivalent of a Western carving knife - slim and long to allow fewer passes of the blade through boneless pieces of meat it helps avoid tearing which gives a more succulent piece of meat as a result.
