Sujihiki 335mm Wave Blackout Short-Neck 1.2519

$3,561.00

Hand forged in Benjamin's Vienna studio this 335mm Sujihiki is something else! The blade is a precision crafted masterpiece forged out of one of the best knife making steels around, tungsten alloyed 1.2519 German tool steel. Sometimes referred to as 52100 plus, the steel features exceptional toughness, edge retention, and at 65HRC it takes a fine, razor-sharp edge. In the expert hands of this Austrian master the result is a blade with flawless cutting performance, exceptional balance and ergonomics.

Kamon knives come with one of the most iconic blade designs around. Each piece features signature elements, but combinations that build to what can only be described as unique, one of a kind heirloom works. This Sujihiki features an array of Benjamin's latest creative efforts, including the “Wave” texturing on the blade, bead blast texturing on the curly walnut handle and the bold new short-neck ricasso design. The blade is black etched or “blacked out” as Ben describes it and paired with black titanium endcaps.

Another incredible piece of work from Benjamin Kamon, always a pleasure and an honour to handle the work of this remarkable artist. This Sujihiki will certainly be an incredible addition to any home kitchen or perhaps a captivating show piece used to carve and slice in the dining room of a Michelin start restaurant.

Product Care:

Cleaning: Clean by hand with warm water. Avoid wetting the handle when possible. 

Sharpening: We advise using whetstones to sharpen your knives and a honing rod or steel to maintain the burr between sharpening sessions. 

Reactive Steels: Reactive steels like Aogami Super, Apex Ultra or one of the many premium reactive German and Swedish steels are susceptible to rust if not properly cared for. In this case we advise that you keep the knife dry between uses and when storing the knife for longer periods wiping the knife blade with Tsubaki oil or another food safe oil is a wise choice. This will not stop a patina forming on the blade, but it will stop rust. A patina can be a beautiful personal feature on your knife and helps to stop rust forming. So, dry your knife regularly between uses, store in a dry place and apply some Tsubaki oil from time to time when storing for long periods. 

A reference guide to steel types

Handle Care: If you have a knife with a non-stabilised wooden handle, you can apply Tsubaki oil or another food safe oil to your handle from time to time. Food safe wax can be applied to both stabilised and no-stabilised wooden handles. Never apply hot wax or oil as you risk warping or damaging the handle.
