About the shape - Sujihiki translates literally to 'Flesh Slicer' and it does exactly what the name suggests. It's perfect for carving and slicing roasts, turkey, raw meats, fish, and all other proteins. The extended blade length allows you to slice with one long stroke instead of sliding the knife back and forth in a sawing motion, and the reduced surface area prevents the blade from sticking to the meat. Clean slices of brisket or ultra thin applications like Carpaccio will become a breeze to execute.
A 270mm sujihiki is excellent for all home applications, slicing birds and smaller roasts.
About Masakage Yuki - This line has been named Yuki (snow) due to the frosty Nashiji finish, paired with the white magnolia handle. The splash of red pakka gives it a feeling of drama, like the final scene of Kill Bill: Volume 1.
Handmade with a hard Shirogami (white) carbon steel and clad in a softer stainless steel, the Yukis are a customer favourite. You get the superior edge retention, easy sharpening and a silky smooth cut of a carbon-steel blade, with only minor maintenance required on the edge of the knife. It’s a genius way to make a knife. Keep the edge dry and you'll be singing.
