For this knife we specially requested the material and quenching method, blacksmith, and sharpener. There really are no other knives like these ones and they are a great addition to any serious collector’s kitchen. Just because they’re fancy doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use them.

About the shape: “Sujihiki” translates to “Flesh Slicer” and it does exactly what the name suggests, perfect for carving and slicing roasts, turkey, raw meats, fish, and all other proteins and the extended blade length allows you to slice with one long stroke, instead of sliding the knife back and forth in a sawing motion. Making clean slices of brisket or ultra thin applications like Carpaccio a breeze to execute.
