One of the most essential knives a chef and a cook can have is a Japanese slicing knife known as a Sujihiki knife. Using the best ingredients requires the right tools. From slicing filets of fish fresh from the fish monger to carving a roast chicken straight from the oven, even the simplest tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional. The Sujihiki slicer is perfect for fabricating large roasts to thinly slicing cucumbers or smoked salmon. Yoshihiro Sujihiki slicing knives are perfect for table-side carving during holidays and special occasions.
Our VG-10 Hammered Damascus Sujihiki slicing knife is forged with a combination of the traditional styles of Japanese and Western slicing knives, with a long straight blade that smoothly slices through meat or vegetables and preserves the integrity of each ingredient’s freshness. Forged and hammered with 16 layers of steel in the Damascus tradition with a VG-10 Core, this knife is complimented with a premium Western style handcrafted mahogany handle that extends to the full tang of the knife and is NSF certified for commercial kitchens and ergonomically welds to the hand for seamless use. The hammered texture of the blade eliminates friction and keeps food from sticking to the blade. Every knife from Yoshihiro is handcrafted by master artisans creating a unique one of a kind work of art.
Japanese knives should always be sharpened and honed on premium quality Japanese water stones. A good quality Japanese water stone not only is the best surface to sharpen and maintain the blade of your knife, but it is also the best tool to preserve and take care of the high quality steel that it is made of.
