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.
About Tojiro - Tojiro is a knife-making giant in Japan. While they have a small factory that produces incredible hand-forged knives, their true specialty is factory-made knives. In Japan, “factory-made” isn’t what most people think. While the blades are rolled and stamped, much of the work is done by hand including grinding and finishing steps. Tojiro primarily works with VG-10, stainless steel loved for its ease of sharpening and easy maintenance.
