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 Fujimoto Hammer Tone - The Hammer Tone is the rock-star of the Fujimoto line, with its striking good looks and sexy shine. The Hammer Tone name comes from the freshly forged look and the X-shaped hammer marks on the carbonized “kurochi” surface. The octagonal walnut handle accents the blade’s look beautifully, and fits perfectly into any size of hand. This gives the blade an overall light feeling and forward balance.
The core steel is SLD stainless steel, which was originally designed by Hitachi for cutting other steels. It holds an edge as long as a carbon steel, but is much easier to care for. This line took almost two years of collaboration and design to create, and we will be continuing to add more shapes as they come out of development.
