“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.

Does this knife come in a shorter size?
Hey Bill, The Miyabi line comes in quite a few different shapes and sizes, anything from about a 90mm petty to the 240mm Sujihiki, unfortunately the 240mm Suji is the only size that we get in, and honestly, there aren’t very many Japanese knife makers that offer sizes under 240mm, there are a few, but you would have to look pretty far and wide to find them, if you are looking for a smaller utility size i would recommend checking out the 160mm petty or the 200mm Gyuto,the Gyuto will not be as slim as the Sujihiki, but the petty is a great size for smaller application meats and pre portioned proteins, as well as any veggies! check them out here! https://knifewear.com/collections/miyabi-5000mcd-b-sg2-birchwood-handle/products/miyabi-5000mcd-b-sg2-petty-160mm https://knifewear.com/collections/miyabi-5000mcd-b-sg2-birchwood-handle/products/miyabi-5000mcd-b-sg2-gyuto-200mm Hope this helps, and if you have any more questions, please feel free to email us back, or give us a call on our toll free number at 1-888-669-6168 outside of Canada, or call our Calgary location at 403-514-0577 Cheers, TJ
