The Suisin Inox Honyaki knives represent a perfect hybrid of traditional Japanese and Western style knives. `Wa’ stands for `Japanese,’ which refers to the thin, honyaki tempered Swedish steel with a traditional Japanese yew handle and a water buffalo horn bolster. The blade’s sharp 90:10 bevel makes it similar to a single-sided edge, which is great for precision work.
Suisin knives are crafted from the heart. From the initial design to the finished product, knives are repeatedly put to test in professional kitchens before they are released to the public. These knives are the unique by-product of a collaboration between the craftsmen and chefs. Suisin craftsmen are constantly challenging themselves to find new ways to ensure long edge retention and easy maintenance. Their goal is to provide chefs worldwide with the quality and careful craftsmanship that will allow them the precision and control to effortlessly create beautiful food.SANTOKU (San – 3 & Toku – benefit): This is the classic Japanese chef’s knife.
