The blade is made of high-grade steel VG10 which is high-grade molybdenum steel added rare metal cobalt vanadium as core material for the central part, and nickel Damascus struck by alternately stacking 62 layers of hard stainless steel containing nickel and soft stainless steel. So, we realize unprecedented strength and bring out the sharpness and durability of VG10 steel to the limit. It is relatively easy to grind and excellent in maintainability. The beautiful ripples of the blade section are very unique and have its own purpose.

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.
