Sujihiki Slicing Knife
Applications of the Sujihiki Knife
When dismantling a block of meat, this knife is used to cut through muscle. It is long, slender, and easy to use, designed to make fine movements with a slight curve and depth of motion. In some popular restaurants, people may sharpen one side of the blade and use it to slice sashimi.
How to Choose a Sujihiki Knife
Many use the 300 mm model for cutting large blocks, such as butcher shops. For the restuarants which often slice meat into small pieces such as Yakiniku (BBQ) restuarants, the 270 mm model is more popular. The 240 mm knife is suitable for those with a smaller work volume or those who work with smaller blocks of meat.
Recommended Stainless Steel Knives ーOur Popular Seriesー

The blade of the 8A-N Series is made from AUS-8, one of the popular stainless steels for Japanese Knives. It is easy to sharpen and slightly tougher than other stainless steels so it is less likely to chip during use. The sharp cutting ability and edge retention of our 8A-N Series is also improved by quenching. As it's low-maintenance, this is a good choice for newcomers to Japanese Knives.

The blade of the G-LINE Series is made from VG-1, a steel made from purified materials with high-skilled steelmaking technology. This leads to high hardness, sharpness and long edge retention.

For people who want "no compromises". It is easy to sharpen and has excellent edge retention.
