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 Takeshi Saji -Hailing from Takefu Knife Village, Takeshi Saji started learning to work the forge under his father in 1966. The full successor to his master father at the age of 30, he is a third generation blacksmith in his family. He continuously strives to forge a better blade. All Masakage Knives are handmade in Japan by blacksmiths chosen for their excellence. Shibata-san, Hiroshima’s top knife sharpener, selects and design these knives. All Masakage knives are hand sharpened by Shibata-san with his unique technique of using a different grit on each side of the blade. This gives a smooth, sharp edge that stays sharp longer than standard sharpening.
