The MAC Original Series was first created over 40 years ago with a new concept in kitchen knife design. First, they chose a steel that allowed to create a thin, flexible blade that is light weight, easy to sharpen, and maintains its edge extremely well. While most people remember MAC knives for their extreme out-of-the-box sharpness and the duration which it lasts, these other features were key to our success. The thin (1.5-2.0mm), flexible blade slides easily through foods without wedging into cuts like a traditional European forged blade and the light weight allows you to use the knife without making your hand and arm tired. Next, they rounded the tip for safety and elevated the handle to create better knuckle clearance when working on a cutting board. Lastly, a hole was punched into the blade to hang the knife.

Sujihiki & Slicers:The classic slicer. Long and thin, this is the best shape for the preparation of any flesh (meat or fish – cooked or raw) without bones. The slim profile presents a smaller are of contact with the flesh and thus reduces the strength of the vacuum between the blade and the food resulting in a smoother and easier cut.Function – Slicing and carving of meat and fish without bones.Normal length – 240mm to 300mm (a few smaller 180mm and longer 330mm are available)Tip: Whilst the 240mm or the 270mm lengths are the most popular select the longest length you are comfortable with. The longer the blade, the lesser the pressure required to cut the food and thus increase the ability to cut thinner slices. As this is one knife that is often taken to the table for carving in front of the diners, apart from the functionality, aesthetics should be an important consideration.
