Tsunehisa VG1, Western handle, Double side sharpened and laminated 3 Layer stainless steel with a core of Japanese VG1 steel. The blade is extremely thin, and hand-sharpened which makes regular maintenance on JKC stones very easy. The VG1 core steel is forged between two layers of softer steel and reflects the special forging techniques of Japan.
Utility:The shape is basically a small Sujihiki or slicing knife. As the name suggests it is a multi-function knife used for the preparation of vegetables and precise cutting of meat and fish. The slim profile presents a smaller area to fatty, oily, and starchy foods where a wider blade would create a stronger vacuum and ‘stick’ more to the food.Function – Multipurpose for preparing all food groups. A favourite knife of many home cooks who are uncomfortable with large blades.Normal length – 150mmTip: This knife is also used for carving petite roasts, filleting and skinning fish as well as careful dissection of poultry without hitting bones. An extremely useful size for any kitchen.
