Junro Aoki, the second son of the Aoki Knife Craft family, was eager to step apart from his family to create his own cherished knife brand. During the twenty years, he spent learning his craft, the young and energetic knife craftsman dreamed of someday creating knives that would combine the traditional qualities of Sakai-style knife-crafting techniques with more modern designs. In 1990, Mr Aoki realised his dream and created the Suisin Collection
These knives are made of a unique combination of Inox high-carbon steel, chromium and molybdenum that gives them superior rust resistance. Hand finishing provides long-lasting sharpness.
This shape is primarily for peeling, paring, or cutting in the hand rather than on aboard. Used for tasks where a larger knife would be tricky or unsafe.
Function – Primarily for peeling and paring vegetables in the hand.
Normal lengths – 90mm to 135mm.
Tip: This knife is a MUST for every kitchen and the ideal partner to a larger chef’s knife.
