Keijiro Doi-san is that blacksmith that all blacksmiths admire. His son Itsuo Doi-san is now carrying the torch but giving his own twist to the signature family-style. This line of knives is made with a unique blade shape, and you can feel its potential as soon as you hold one. With the blade's extra height, I can see this slicer being used as a chef knife as well. It might be the one knife a minimalist needs. It feels like the future and is Perfect for those who see potential in new design and ideas.

About the Shape “Flesh Slicer” would be this knife’s name in English. It does just what the name suggests. Roast beef/turkey, raw meats, fish, all flesh really is a Sujihiki’s specialty.
