About the Shape -
Partially because of this unique history, Suzuki-san’s kitchen knives look pretty unorthodox compared to other Japanese blades, especially his nakiris. His knives are single bevels with a flat back and forged with a unique ridged spine which Suzuki-san calls the ‘ear’ of the knife. The spines on the blades are super thick at around 5mm, but the rest of the knife is uber thin, about 1mm. As soon as we started carrying them, knife nerds worldwide were eager to get their hands on them and try these Bizarro blades for themselves. Just about everyone who tries one falls in love immediately, and here’s why:
Thin blades glide through food effortlessly, but super thin knives can become almost flimsy and are far more prone to damage. The thick ‘ear’ spine gives the blade much-needed rigidity, significantly increasing its strength. The ‘ear’ ridge along the spine also pushes food away from the face of the knife, creating incredible separation, so you never end up with a huge mountain of food falling over the top of your blade. This seemingly blasphemous addition of traditional sickle forging techniques to kitchen knives is next level. Suzuki-san’s blades are some of the most exciting and inventive kitchen knives we’ve seen.

Suzuki-san is known primarily for his hand-forged sickles, but he also makes some incredible kitchen knives, unlike anything we've ever seen before! These single-bevel versions of standard knife shapes take some getting used to, but they allow food to fall away from the blade effortlessly.
