Product Description

Carving and slicing? Sujihiki is what you want and the Sukenari Sujihiki with a HAP40 core is a beautiful, durable razor with high edge retention and lovely profile.

The profile is flat and long as you would expect on a slicer like this, with a very slight curve towards the end of the blade. Using the knife is a pleasure. The blade is well balanced for a pinch grip and has a nice amount of weight with out it being too light and flighty. The HAP40 steel confidently holds a razor sharp edge and at HRC64+/- the edge retention on these blades is exception.

The profile is perfectly suited for a pull cut action that these kinds of knives are designed for. The octagonal Wa handle is constructed out of Ebony and Buffalo horn and features near perfect fit and finish. The handle feels comfortable and fills you hand nicely.

All in all the Sukenari Sujihiki in HAP40 is a beautiful knife to work with and has been crafted by some of the best blacksmiths in the world. You won’t be disappointed.
