VG-10 three-layer steel: The three-layer steel is easy to sharpen, VG10 steel material is loved by professional chefs. Molybdenum, Vanadium, and Cobalt, which enhance the longevity of the sharpness.
The craftsmen of Tsubame-Sanjo create a hamaguri-shaped edge (a blade with a cross-section that resembles a clam) using the traditional Sharpening method. The gentle curve of the edge reduces the resistance when cutting into food. Its excellent sharpness provides a smooth cut.
A balanced Blade: The weight of the blade and handle are designed to balance the center of gravity in the middle of the knife to optimize the cutting skills of professional chefs, which allows to cut into gristly meat, large vegetables, and hard food with a lighter force.
Handle shape: The handle is narrow at the root and thick at the end, so it is easy to hold and transmit force.
Blade: VG10 Clad Stainless Steel

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.
