$242.35 $346.25

The long narrow profile and the stunning Nashiji finish on this Ginsan Sujihik (slicer) Japanese kitchen knife make it stand out from all the rest. Perfect for slicing meats, roasts, bread, and also perfect sashimi. It will do everything you need straight out of the box.

An amazing knife that would enhance any Japanese kitchen knife set/collection. When I trialed this knife slicing salmon sashimi it gave me the beautiful clean finish you expect on sashimi and carving a pork roast handled the job with ease. The fine edge on the blade let me cut perfect 5mm slices from the roast without the meat falling apart.

The core of these knives is Ginsan steel hardened to HRC61 and it is clad in softer low carbon stainless steel. The resulting combination gives these blades an exceptionally tough, long-lasting, chip resisting edge that is comparatively easy to sharpen.
